Manyonga leaps to win in Hengelo

Cape Town – Long jump star Luvo Manyonga fell three centimetres shy of his own national record at the IAAF World Challenge in Hengelo, Netherlands.

Manyonga launched a leap of 8.62m with his final attempt to win the men’s long jump on Sunday.

Ruswahl Samaai, ranked second behind his compatriot in the 2017 global list, took second place with a leap of 8.34m.

Former African champion Zarck Visser settled for sixth place with a 7.88m effort.

While Antonio Alkana was well outside the SA 110m hurdles record of 13.11, he clocked in Prague six days earlier, he won a tight battle in 13.47, just 0.02 ahead of French athlete Aurel Manga.

Sprinter Anaso Jobodwana finished second in the men’s 200m sprint in 20.62, taking 0.07 off his season’s best, and Carina Horn was third in the women’s 100m race in 11.35.

Jo-Ane van Dyk, a silver medallist at last year’s World Junior Championships in Bydgoszcz, finished sixth in the women’s javelin throw after producing a best heave of 54.33m.

At the Lahti Games in Finland on Friday night, javelin throw star Sunette Viljoen, sprinter Emile Erasmus and long jumper Khotso Mokoena had all secured victories.

Viljoen won with a best heave of 62.18m, more than three metres ahead of her nearest challenge, as the Olympic silver medallist opened her European campaign with a solid performance.

Erasmus took the men’s 100m dash in 10.35, edging out Zambian teenager Sydney Siame by 0.04, while Mokoena delivered a best effort of 7.86m to win the single-leap discipline 27cm clear of his nearest opponent.

Claudia Heunis finished fourth in the women’s 100m hurdles race in 13.54.

Meanwhile, Wayde van Niekerk smashed the national 200m record at the Racers Grand Prix Meeting in Kingston, Jamaica on Saturday night.
