Such a huge shame he had +2,1 m/s as wind, so it won't count as anything official...0,1 too much :(

8.83 would be best result since 2009 Dwight Phillips result.

I don't think so, Echevarria will be remembered as one of the biggest legends of athletics once he retires, even bigger than Pedroso. I think it's only a matter of time until he will break the 9 m mark and i doubt that anyone of us will live long enough to witness another man jumping 9 m, so you guys better follow all his competitions very closely, because history is about to be rewritten. Another thing that amazes me is how many talented athletes Cuba produces in triple/long jump and boxing/wrestling, not to mention their talent production in baseball ...

And how many of those incredibly talented young guys eventually don't quite make it in the senior levels or sort of get stuck at a level that's just not high enough for the best of the world. I hope Echevarria will be different, much like Pichardo I like him.

Not surprising considering the standard of living there, i think it's much more difficult for them to stay inury free + i don't think that the question whether you get funding is just based on your performances and potential + it's probably much more difficult to focus on sport over there and block out everything else.
