Khotso’s great Greek leap
- Updated: June 1, 2009
Olympic silver medallist Khotso Mokoena is rapidly finding his form ahead of the world track and field championships in Berlin, Germany later this year.
Mokoena, 24, made use of the excellent conditions in the Kalamata Stadium in Greece at the weekend when he won the long jump event with a leap of 8.33-metres to register the third best legal distance of his career and only the third best of the year in the world.
The South african set his national record of 8.39m in Finland three years ago while he also jumped 8.34 a year later.┬á He also achieved 8.45m in the 2006 African Championships in Mauritius but the following wind was too strong for the mark to be ratified.
