Frayne’s long odds
AUSTRALIAN Henry Frayne finished sixth in a stunning men’s long jump competition at the Diamond League athletics meet in Rome yesterday. Reigning world and Commonwealth champion Luvo Manyonga from South Africa won the event with a huge leap of 8.58m – the biggest in the world this year. Juan Miguel Echevarria from Cuba pushed Manyonga all the way before being forced to settle for second spot with a personal best of 8.53m. Frayne’s best jump of 8.15m in the second round was 19cm short of the PB he set for silver at the Commonwealth Games.
