Commonwealth Games long jump champion Luvo Manyonga continued his fine
form with a meeting record victory at the IAAF Diamond League event in
London on Sunday, 22 July 2018.
Manyonga led South Africa 1-2 as
fellow Commonwealth medallist Ruswahl Samaai took silver.
Manyonga won his third consecutive London long jump contest with the
seasonˇ¦s best 8.58-metre effort he produced in the fourth round.
It was a super series of jumps as he soared further than 8.40 with five of
his six jumps. His first effort was 8.16m.
ˇ§I feel like I am the main man at this stadium," said Manyonga. "Coming back
into a great atmosphere with these fans means so much."
Samaaiˇ¦s season-best also came with his fourth attempt.
