Jeswin Aldrin won a compelling long jump duel with Murali Sreeshankar on Day 2 of the 2022 Federation Cup athletics meet in Kozhikode, Kerala on Saturday (2). Both athletes went beyond Sreeshankar’s national record mark of 8.26m to register the farthest two jumps in the event by Indians.

Aldrin produced the best jump of 8.37m but it will not count as a national record because to an illegal tailwind of 4.1 m/s. Sreeshankar produced 8.36m to come second, which will be the new Indian record and new World lead.

In fact, both jumpers produced nine 8+ meter jumps.
