Tajay GAYLE - Jamaica - 2019 World athletics long jump Champion.

Just valid jumps from six attempts,  but each good enough to win the men's long jump

gold medal.  A new personal best of 8.46m on his first leap set the standard

(2016 Olympic Champion Jeff Henderson was unable to beat it 8.39m)

and a then a another P.B. with his fourth setting a National record and World leading

distance of 8.69m:  Tajay stole the show.
