SummaryEdit

The last qualifier to the final was Tajay Gayle with a 7.89m. In the final, as the third jumper on the runway, Gayle jumped a personal best 8.46m to take the lead. No other jumper would beat that mark. World leader Juan Miguel Echevarría jumped 8.25m while giving up the entire 20cm width of the board. His jump was bettered by Jeff Henderson with an 8.28m three jumpers later. In the third round, Echevarría improved to 8.34m. And three jumpers later, Henderson improved to 8.39m. That decided the other medalists. In the fourth round, Gayle improved to 8.69 m (28 ft 6 in) +0.5. Not only did it win the competition, it leapfrogged him into the #11 position of all time. Just two months earlier in the season, Gayle had made a huge improvement in his personal best to 8.32m, which put him into a tie for #15 of all time.[2][3][4]
