UJ’s stand out long jumper

Date: Sep 11, 2013 | News


​​UJ’s long jumper stood out for the South African contingent competing at the Diamond League event in Zurich, Switzerland.​

​​​UJ student, Zarck Visser, who was eliminated in the qualifying round at the IAAF World Championships in Moscow two weeks ago, produced a surprise with a personal best leap of 8.32m and won the League. Visser took the early lead and went beyond eight metres with his first three attempts, and while he did not produce a legal jump in the second half of the competition, he had done enough to comfortably beat former Olympic silver medallist Khotso Mokoena (8.09m).​​​
