Long jumper Corentin Campener (27) has Wednesday placed before the european CHAMPIONSHIPS of athletics in Berlin (6-12 August). With 7m98, he jumped on the meeting in the French Castres, three centimetres further than the EC limit (7m95). Campener sharpness his personal record by four inches.
The athlete of Royal Excelsior Sports Club Brussels did so in extremis, to ensure an EK ticket. The selectieperiode is closed.
Campener opened with a nulsprong, followed by 7m92. Then he showed the three invalid jumps again. In his last attempt he managed his best performance, sufficient for participation in the european CHAMPIONSHIPS, and victory in Castres.
