• ROJAS LEAPS 14.98M TO TAKE PORTSIDE TRIPLE JUMP IN MONACO

Yulimar Rojas produced a performance worthy of a world champion on Thursday (11) in the steamy heat of Monaco as she moved from zero to hero to win the women’s triple jump event being held at the Port Hercule. 

As she ran up for her third attempt she was eleventh and last after a first-round foul and a second-round effort of 13.28m and needed to get into the top eight in order to have a chance of continuing in the competition.

Of a runway that was moving around almost as much as she was, she landed at 14.96m – only nine centimeters short of her personal best. But Rojas, with her next effort, added another two centimeters to her lead with 14.98m.
