Brittney REESE - U.S.A. - Fourth World Championship long jump Gold.

Brittney Reese won her 4th. World Championship long jump title in London
to add to those won in Berlin 2009, Daegu 2011 and Moscow 2013 with her
third jump of 7.02 metres. In fact she had only two valid jumps (6.75 in her
opening attempt) to just edge out Darya Klishina the 26 year old Russian
competing under the Authorised Neutral Athletes "flag". Darya had five jumps
better then Brittney's 6.75m - her 7 metre leap coming on her 5th.
Olympic Champion Tianna Bartoletta was third.
