Lorraine Ugen Wins Women’s Long Jump World Indoor Tour In Madrid

Lorraine Ugen of the United Kingdom won her second long jump race at the World Indoor Tour this year, setting a new meeting record of 6.67m in the fifth round.

Fatima Diamé leaped 6.51m to finish second, ahead of Larissa Iapichino, the world under 20 indoor record holder, who jumped 6.45m after rebounding back from three fouls at the Italian Indoor Championships in Ancona last week.

Khaddi Sagnia withdrew from the competition late and finished with the same point as Ugen in the World Indoor Tour Standings. Ugen won the overall title because to her greatest performance on the World Indoor Tour this year: she leapt 6.71m in Staten Island, narrowly beating out Sagnia’s 6.70m in Birmingham.

Lorraine Ugen: “I did by the skin of my teeth. The competition went okay. I was a bit shaky. I got one decent jump out there and the rest were a bit off. Once I get to the World Championships and have my coach to give my feedback, I should get some better distance out there. My runway needs to be fine-tuned a little bit more but once I get that right, the jumps will come”.
