  • Gulfport's Brittney Reese re-captures gold in long jump

The 30-year-old Reese secured victory with her third jump of 7.02 metres, beating Klishina by two centimetres. Ivana Spanovic a medal contender was the fourth best qualifier at 6.62m.

The United States won gold and bronze in the event, with Tianna Bartoletta jumping 22-10.5. Though her 7.02m attempt in round 3 looked like it could be vulnerable, ultimately none of the other finalists were able to better it. Darya Klishina, who is from Russian Federation but competed as an Authorized Neutral Athlete, was closest with her 7.00m leap in round 5, but at just two centimeters away she had to settle for the silver medal. She's also won 10 USA championships in addition to an Olympic silver medal.

But Spanovic on her second attempt recorded a jump, a jump of 6.96m to go into the lead.

Isco Pens New Real Madrid Contract With Enormous Release Clause
It is said no player in the Madrid first team has a release clause lower than €500 with players in the youth tea, already on €300. Isco has signed his contract renewal with Real Madrid , a reliable club source has confirmed to Diario AS.


Bartoletta's five scoring jumps progressed upwards from 6.56.

Klishina, displaced to third by successive jumps from Spanovic and Reese, restored herself to silver with the best effort of a superbly consistent sequence. She's won world championships in 2009, 2010 (indoor), 2011, 2012 (indoor), 2013, and 2016 (indoor).

Klinshina, 26, was satisified with a medal, her first from a world championships. Reese did not compete in the TrackTown New York final in early July due to her grandfather's condition. Bartoletta jumped 6.88m in the fifth round whilst Klishina jumped 6.91m in the fourth round then 7.00m in the fifth to take second from Spanovic who occupied for quite some time.
