Osaka Long Jump Predictions

World leader Loúis Tsátoumas (Greece) is out injured.

Gold - Irving Saladino (Panama). The long jump is generally not prone to big upsets and I certainly don't expect one here.

Silver - Andrew Howe (Italy). No, that name doesn't sound Italian. He was born in LA and moved to Rieti when he was five years old.

Bronze - Dwight Phillips (USA). It looks like his streak of World championships is going to end at two.


Gold - Tatyana Lebedeva (Russia).

Silver - Lyudmila Kolchanova (Russia). The defending European champion has improved significantly each year since hitting the world stage.

Bronze - Naide Gomes (Portugal).
