Tentoglou Wins Long Jump Gold at the World Championships

ATHENS – Olympic champion Miltiadis Tentoglou won long jump gold at the World Championships when his final leap of 8.52 metres edged him ahead of Jamaica’s Wayne Pinnock by two centimetres on Thursday.

“This competition may have been the toughest I have taken part in,” Tentoglou said. “Last year it was a bad competition for me but this year I had no excuses.”

“But I was not comfortable. After my third jump I started to feel my legs cramping. That’s why it took so long to get the big jump. I had to test my legs to see that I was fine and then I went for it in the final jump after having felt no pain,” he said.
