Tyrone Smith finished 8th competing in the Men’s Long Jump at the Stockholm Diamond League Track Meet.
Smith leaped a Season Best 7.94m, Cuba’s Juan Miguel Echevarria won the event with a top leap of 8.83m, Jeff Henderson from the USA was second leaping 8.39m and Luvo Manyonga from South Africa finished third.
Smith said via social media, “7.94m for a new seasons best, but I still have a bad taste in my mouth!”
Smith continued, “I had a solid 8.20-8.30 foul. Ultimately I can be confident that my decision to go back to 22 strides is the right one.”
Smith concluded, “As far as I'm concerned that was my season opener forget all that retirement talk.”
