Andre Anura became the first Malaysian to go over 8 metres in long jump

>> December 07, 2019

An 8-meter mark would have won the gold medal in all the SEA Games editions, but not during the most recent one at Clark, the Philippines.

Two legal marks of over 8 meters were set in a dramatic men's long jump finals on Saturday evening (7 December).

At first, Malaysian youngster Andre Anura @ Anuar who had jumped 7.90m last month had two massive foul jumps beyond 8 meters, during his first and second jumps.

However, it was Indonesia's Asian Games bronze medalist Sapwaturrahman who eventually claimed the gold medal.
Andre Anura leaped 8.02m in long jump

With a personal best of 8.09m, the 25-year-old former Indonesian sprinter has registered a distance of 8.03m (+0.5) during his fourth attempt, renewing the Games Record of 7.87m by Henry Dagmil of the Philippines since 2007.

The 20-year-old Andre responded that during his last attempt but merely shy from grabbing the top spot. He secured the silver medal.

He recorded a distance measuring 8.02m to become the first Malaysian to achieve an 8-meter mark in the long jump.

Thailand's former Asian decathlon champion Suttisak Singkhon who stands 6'3" and weighs 95kg, had a new PB of 7.89m, which would also renew the previous GR, but only enough for a bronze medal.

It was unfortunate for Andre that he had "deemed to be better" jumps which were fouled, while his best legal jump was against a slight breeze (-0.1).

Andre now owns the Malaysian national record by renewing the mark of 7.88m by Josbert Tinus since 2007.

Of note, Andre's 7.90m mark last month was not ratified by the national federation due to the absence of wind reading, and "technical constraints" (meeting not recognized).
