he jumped flat-out in lille
he didn't know wind was going to be 2.4
he virtually assuredly assumed it was < 2 at start & went for wr to stand a century
not in the way that Harrison did in 1996
he got crap wind in meet
his 18.09 was into a wind !!!
the chief judge there said kenny had a marginal foul which was ~ 18.35
& kenny never got any wind that meet
so that was likely a 18.30+ toe-sand with 0, even -ve wind !!!
hugely superior to anything edwards ever jumped
get a clue
look up edwards best jump with 0 / -ve wind
And indeed, at Gothenburg, where he had the two WR's, he says later (see wiki) that he had more in the tank, that he could have gone as far as it took to win and didn't need to jump farther
he jumped as far as he coud on some abominablly illegal run-way :
there is an audible clunk on the jump section indicating a buried wooden board which probably added 15 - 20cm to his jump
a travesty !!!
