T&T debutant 17th in long jump

Kwame Laurence :: Trinidad Express :: 27.09.2019

Andwuelle Wright exited the IAAF World Athletics Championship men's long jump event, yesterday, the Trinidad and Tobago athlete falling short in his bid to secure a spot in today's final.

With the top 12 progressing from the qualifying competition at the Khalifa International Stadium here in Doha, Qatar, Wright finished 17th in a field of 27 at 7.76 metres. The Tobago jumper found little consolation in the fact that he became the most successful T&T jumper in World Champs history, bettering Onika James' 18th-place women's long jump finish at the 2003 edition of the global meet.
