Men’s long jump final: Righto, we are at the business end now: the sixth and final round of jumps.
Cuban Juan Miguel Echevarria still holds away in gold medal position with that jump of 8.41m. Sweden’s Thobias Montler just put in what looked to be a superior jump – and it was – but agonisingly it was a foul, barely centimetres over the stripe. Heartbreak for the Swede. But rules are rules.
Perhaps it’s the sexiness of the 100m, perhaps it’s because Australia has been starved of a male sprinter of note for what seems like a lifetime. Perhaps it’s both.
Even though he failed to back up his sizzling heat run in the semis, there is barely a sports fan down under who does not know the name Rohan Browning.
