Long Jump Men: Gao wins China’s cheers with narrow win
Gao Xinglong: "I had a little bit pain in my ankle after two jumps, it limited me from pushing myself to my best for the rest of the competition. I was surprised with the result since it was not my best performance. In terms of my next step, preparing for the Olympic Games. I will focus on my injury first and than take part in the Diamond Leagues in June in Europe. I am looking forward to a good season this year.
Rushwal Samaal: "I am pretty happy with today. Okay, I lost on countback but that is sport, you win some you lose some. The bigger distances will come later in the season."
Fabrice Lapierre: "it was not too bad and a solid opening for the season. The conditions were not bad as the wind only shifted around a little bit."
