Luvo Manyonga continued his outstanding indoor form last night in Metz, France, by breaking the South African record for the third time in 4 days, and leaping to a new African record of 8.40m. This continental record was set 12 years ago, and Manyonga broke it by an incredible 8cm.

The next competition Manyonga will take part in, is the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Birmingham, England at the beginning of March.
