Bermudaís Tyrone Smith missed out on advancing to the Menís World Track and Field Long Jump Championships Final.
Smith recorded a top leap of 7.88m to miss out on a chance to compete tomorrow.
If there were any doubts over the fitness of Luvo Manyonga, they were quickly dispelled, as the South African qualified for Saturdayís long jump final at the first attempt.
The 26-year-old lightly strained his ankle in winning at the IAAF Diamond League meeting in June, meaning that, despite having exceeded 8.60m in four competitions in 2017, little was known about his current fitness.
Yet the Olympic silver medallist was the first athlete to jump beyond the 8.05m automatic qualification distance and appeared to show no ill-effects from his six-week absence from competition.
