Manyonga stuns in Shanghai

Luvo Manyonga stunned the athletics world this weekend at the Shanghai Diamond League meeting by breaking not only the meeting record twice in three jumps, but also jumping 8.61m to break the overall Diamond League record.

Maynyonga put together an incredible series of jumps of 8.48m, 8.49m and 8.61m through the evening which puts him further along the path to achieving his goal of becoming the first person to jump over 9m.

No one has jumped further than 8.60m since 2009 and Monyonga has now done so 3 times in the past month.
