Lee-Roy Newton, group MD, gave assurance that the world’s best long jumper, Luvo Manyonga, has not injured himself seriously with his last jump at the Stockholm Diamond League Meeting on Sunday.
“At this stage, I will certainly hesitate to use the word injured. I have spoken to him afterwards and although he is in slight pain I am confident that it is nothing serious. However, when he is back at Tuks/HPC he will definitely go for a scan just to make a 100% sure. I think we will have all the answers by Wednesday. We certainly don’t want to be taking any chances before the World Championships in London as our main goal for the season is to win a medal, preferably gold,” said Newton.
