Yulimar Rojas clears doubts: in the final with a single attempt

eugene, ore ( Associated Press) — One effort was enough for Yulimar Rojas to show he was okay. Venezuela was immediately placed in the triple jump final at the World Championships in Athletics with an execution that actually required five jumps.

The first three were in the libretto. A quarter was necessary for Rojas to avoid tripping over the cable of the microphone placed next to the sand pit. With fifth, the biggest star of Latin American athletics managed to plant his feet well in tartan and coincidentally attained a challenging pose with a smile.

“I did this instead of my dance,” he said after Saturday’s exam.

Yes, she reaches the World Cup by becoming herself.

There were doubts about this, after the jumper was absent from the Madrid meeting last month, the last competition she would participate in before the appointment in Eugene, Oregon, due to an iliopsoas narrowing in her left leg.

That absence, and the silence in the weeks that followed, had raised some doubts about Rojas’ actual status. In recent days, the uncertainty subsided, when the world record holder published videos on social networks, where he appeared smiling and confident.

“I don’t have a problem. I’m calm and I’m not worried,” he told the Associated Press in a mixed zone. “The years have taught us to take care of ourselves to do things better. Everything is going great, we are focusing on the final and enjoying this beautiful World Cup.”

In the tie, Rojas made it clear he was enjoying himself, from the moment he appeared on the jump lane at Hayward Field in Eugene, his hair short and dyed blonde. He raised and waved his arms to disturb the audience.

As usual, he made several attempts to step forward, only to keep his foot back.

He then took a run and jumped 14.72m, enough to win Group B of the tie. In the same group, Dominican Ana Tima was second with 14.52, followed by American Tory Franklin and Jamaican Kimberly Williams.

From Group A, Ukrainian Maryina Bekh-Romanchuk is in first place with 14.54m, followed by Finnish Kristina Makela, Jamaica’s Shanika Ricketts and Achelia Smith, Dominican Thea Lafond, American Keturah Orji, Portuguese Patricia Maimona and Cuba’s Leonis. Perez.

Rojas looks to Eugene for a three-time world championship. He also wants to emulate the magic shown at last year’s Tokyo Olympics, where he broke the world record by 17cm to 15.67m to win the gold medal.

On 20 March, Rojas jumped 15.74 meters to break his own record in Belgrade and claim his third consecutive indoor world title.

He himself considered it possible to break the 16-metre barrier. He emphasized this on Saturday.

“I always have full confidence and so is Ivan (Pedroso, his Cuban coach),” he said. “We have a strategy and you don’t plan these things so much, but I keep saying it can be done.”
