A 19-Year-Old Just Shocked The World With Longest Jump Since 1995

A 19-Year-Old Just Shocked The World With Longest Jump Since 1995

Something extraordinary has just happened at the Stockholm Diamond League this afternoon, involving talented 19-year-old long jumper, Juan Miguel Echevarria.

The Cuban, who represented his country at the 2017 World Championships, has stunned those watching at home with a monstrous 8.83m jump.

To put Echevarria's feat into perspective, it's the furthest anyone has jumped since 1995.

HE ALMOST JUMPS OUT OF THE SAND PIT!

Not only that, but he has literally launched himself into fifth place on the world all-time list

Again, the fact that only four men have jumped further than Juan Miguel Echevarria's 8.83 is just incredible and one of those to beat his achievement is fellow Cuban, Ivan Pedroso.

Have you seen anything like it before?

Here's some of the reaction from his massive jump on Sunday afternoon:




And I thought I jumped far in my Primary School Sports Day in 2002 - how the mighty have fallen.

Congratulations to Juan Miguel Echevarria though, that was absolutely insane.
