Tyrone Smith Jumps Season Best In Stockholm

June 11, 2018

Bermuda’s Tyrone Smith leap of 7.94m at the Diamond League meet in Stockholm, Sweden was a season best for the three time Olympian, who said the meet was his ‘season opener’.

In a post on social media, the long jumper said, “7.94m for a new seasons best but I still have a bad taste in my mouth! 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. As far as I’m concerned that was my season opener, forget all that retirement talk.”
