      Who has added this much - 37cm/1 foot, 2.5 " - to their personal best to win a global title? That's 8cm more than Mike Powell tacked onto his best in Tokyo when he set the WR of 8.95.

          Of course, now back to the land of the believable......even still, Gayle is only 14cm less than Beamon's leap forward.

            His position on the all-time list on Saturday was higher than his position in the qualifying round the day before!

                Toe to heel bests -
                Gayle 8.69 + 0.01 = 8.70 [and 8.48 on his 8.46 jump]
                Echevarria 8.30 + 0.27 = 8.57 [8.48 toe to heel on his 8.25 and 8.34 jumps]
                Henderson 8.39 + 0.02 = 8.41

                  Might have been a profitable bet that the Jamaicans would be more likely to medal in the TJ vs the 100m.

                    Coach Francis says Gayle will aim to get a spot on the Jamaican Olympic team in the individual 100m for 2020. His PB is 10.42.

                      I'm actually surprised that there isn't multiple great long jumpers coming out of Jamaica.

                        I remember remarking to myself during the competition that Gayle "looked" fast.

                          On the IAAF feed they do show the jumpers' takeoff speed; is that data archived anywhere for the public?

                            I believe for past editions they would publish it (or at least some of it) at some point after WC as 'biomechanics project' or something of the sort.

                              It would be nice to have it readily available but biomechanics data is available here (account required):
