Athletics: Women’s Long Jump Final in Birmingham

Ugen sets world leading mark and championship record in thrilling long jump competition at the muller British Championship at Alexander Stadium, Birmingham on Sunday 1st July 2018.

Featuring world, European and Commonwealth medallists, the women’s long jump was always going to be one of the events to watch, and it certainly didn’t disappoint.

Lorraine Ugen (Shawn Jackson; Thames Valley Harriers) produced one of the performances of the weekend to jump a huge world-leading distance of 7.05m to successfully defend her title. Not only was the distance a Championship record and a new lifetime best for Ugen, but it was also the furthest any female longer jumper has jumped in 2018.

The strength in depth in women’s long jump within Britain was on show with the 26-year-old one of three athletes to jump over 6.80m. 2016 winner Jazmin Sawyers (City of Stoke) set a new personal best of 6.86m to secure silver and British Indoor record holder Shara Proctor (Rana Reider; Birchfield Harriers) jumped a distance of 6.81m to claim bronze.

Ugen and Sawyers were one of six athletes to set new lifetime bests, including Commonwealth heptathlon bronze medallist Niamh Emerson (David Feeney; Amber Valley and Erewash) who ended two busy days of competition by setting a personal best of 6.41m.

Emerson had already set a personal best in the javelin just an hour before, less than 24 hours after setting a season best in the final of the 100m Hurdles.
