Cuba Martinez Discovered His Old Form A World Lead In Lievin

Earlier today at the Lievin indoor, the former World Youth Champion, Cuban Lazaro Martinez hit his cherished form. The giant man, son of a quarter miller, Martinez flew 17.21m in his second jump to win gallantly.

Martínez came into limelight in 2014 when he jumped a world youth best of 17.24 m in front of a home crowd in the Cuban capital Havana. He then went on to broke the World Junior Championship record twice at the 2014 World Junior Championships in Eugene, Oregon, jumping 17.08 m with a 0.6 m/s headwind on his first attempt and 17.13 m with a 0.7 m/s headwind on his second attempt. He became the fourth Cuban world junior champion in the triple jump after Yoelbi Quesada in 1992, René Hernández in 1996, Arnie David Giralt in 2002 and Pedro Pablo Pichardo in 2012.
