Saunders Record Still Stands 32 Years Later

August 5, 2022 | 0 Comments

The high jump portion of the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham has concluded, and the record-breaking jump by Bermuda’s Clarence “Nicky” Saunders continues to stand the test of time, remaining unbroken after 32 years.

Mr. Saunders – who also made three Olympic appearances for Bermuda – leaped 2.36 metres [7.74ft] at the 1990 Commonwealth Games in New Zealand, becoming the first Bermudian to win a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games, and since that time we have claimed two more, courtesy of Dame Flora Duffy.
