Smith's Long Jump Opponent Will Need a Bigger Pit

Venues are going to need to expand their long-jump pits whenever 19-year-old Juan Miguel Echevarria comes to town.

During the Diamond League event that featured Bermuda Olympian Tyrone Smith, the Cuban teenager unleashed a jaw-dropping 8.83-meter (29 feet, 11.5 inches) jump. It was the longest-recorded jump in any condition since 1995. He nearly jumped clear over the pit in the process.

Just wow. Echevarria was practically flying.

According to Sports Illustrated, Echevarria's jump won't be allowed for official record consideration (it would have been fifth all-time) because the jump was aided by 2.1 meters per second of wind. The maximum threshold for records is 2 meters per second.

Either way, that jump was ridiculous. The world record is 8.95 meters.
