SummaryEdit

Just a month before this event, Yulimar Rojas jumped 15.41m for the #2 mark in history. It was almost half a metre longer than world #2 Shanieka Ricketts. #6 of all time Caterine Ibargüen was also in this competition and has been in that neighborhood in the past, but hadn't jumped over 15 metres since 2016. At 35, she had already set the Masters world record twice this season.

As the third jumper in the finals, Rickets put her first effort out at 14.81m. The next jumper up was Rojas jumping marginally better with a 14.87m. The next best jumper in the first round was Kimberly Williams with a 14.64m, her personal best. As her second attempt, Rojas landed 15.37 m (50 ft 5 in) (-0.6) meaning into a slight headwind. It was the #4 jump in history, with only Françoise Mbango Etone's winning jump from the 2008 Olympics separating it from her own #2. Game. Set. Match.

Later in the round, Williams duplicated her personal best and held on to third place until the fifth round, when Ibargüen took the bronze away with a 14.73m. Inconsequential to the results, Rojas' fourth attempt of 15.18m equaled the #26 jump in history.[2]
