Totally unreal story. Goodwin is a WR for the Buffalo Bills. He was a 2-time NCAA lj champ and a 2012 Olympian. However, he hadn't competed at all since 2012. What does he do? Goes out and PRs and places 4th.
Yes. 8.37m was wind-aided but it was his best jump in any condition ever.
What does it prove?
I don't know. Practice is overrated. How does one PR after not jumping for 3 years? Unreal.
I read another article saying that if he'd made worlds he wouldn't have gone but this article acts like he might have gone.
