Indian long jumper Murali Sreeshankar clinched the gold medal at the MVA High Performance athletics meet 1 held in Chula Vista, USA. The 24-year-old produced an impressive leap of 8.29m, just 0.07m short of his personal best of 8.36m set last year.

China’s Ma Weidong managed to secure the silver medal with a leap of 7.99m, while his compatriot Huafeng Huang took home the bronze medal with an effort of 7.61m. Despite their efforts, they were unable to catch up with the brilliant performance of Sreeshankar.

However, despite his effort being above the qualifying standard of 8.25m for the World Athletics Championships 2023 scheduled to take place in Budapest this August, it was not considered due to the tailwinds being above the permissible limits. The maximum permissible wind speed is +2 m/s, while Sreeshankar’s effort came with wind speed of 3.1m/s.

Murali Sreeshankar previously held the men’s long jump national record in India, having achieved a remarkable jump of 8.36m. However, his record was surpassed by Jeswin Aldrin, who jumped an impressive 8.42m at the second Indian Open Jumps Championships held in March.
