The long jumpers got quite the worst of Wednesday night’s weather. No one got the automatic qualifying distance of 6.70m. Tianna Barloletta went almost as close as anyone with 6.64m. The world and Olympic champion will be bidding for her third consecutive global title. She beat Brittany Reese, the Olympic silver medallist, at the US Championships which is a good form line.
Olympic bronze medallist Ivana Spanovic has been challenging for the big titles for several years now and will be highly motivated to make it here. Speaking of motivation, Lorraine Ugen will have 60,000 home fans barracking her on. Others in the medal hunt include Blessing Okagbare-Ighoteguonor, Darya Klishina and Brooke Stratton.
