Fabrice LAPIERRE - Australia - Silver medal in long jump at 2015 World Championships.

Second place is always an "if only" position but Fabrice Lapierre, pictured above with his silver medal (hidden !)

was probably happy with his performance, in the final, where he finished behind the Olympic Champion

Greg Rutherford. Rutherford's second jump measured 8.29.  Thus Faberice's final leap of 8.24 (a season best)

was the third best of the competition (and kept him in second place -  had a 8.20 on his fifth attempt).

Fabrice's personal best jump was 8.40 metres, achieved on 14 July 2010.
