World indoor champion Juan Miguel Echevarria was the last athlete competing at Madrid’s Polideportivo Gallur.

With all the track action having concluded, all that was left was the final round of the men’s long jump. Echevarria had led since his opening-round effort of 8.33m, a mark he almost matched in round two with 8.31m.

Miltiadis Tentoglou (8.07m), Thobias Montler (8.02m) and Yuki Hashioka (8.02m) all crept over eight metres in the successive rounds, but none of them could challenge Echevarria.

The Cuban took to the runway one last time and sailed out to a meeting record of 8.41m, just five centimetres shy of the indoor PB he set when winning the 2018 world indoor title.
