2018 Men’s Long Jump World Rankings

Juan Miguel Echevarría improved all the way from 27-2 (8.28) to scaring 29-feet. (JIRO MOCHIZUKI/IMAGE OF SPORT)

STILL A TEENAGER when he did his jumping this year, Juan Miguel Echevarría was a narrow choice for No. 1 after not jumping after July 5 following an undisclosed injury. The young Cuban lost only twice, both times to reigning No. 1 Luvo Manyonga, whom he beat 4 times. That head-to-head edge combined with World Indoor gold and superior marks for a squeaker of a victory…

ECHEVARRÍA’S MARKS were indeed notable, his farthest jump being a wind-aided 28-11¾w (8.83), a mark only 5 others have ever bettered under all conditions. His legal best, 28-5¾ (8.68), lifted him to No. 11 on the all-time legal list as he had a quartet of 28-foot meets… Manyonga was no slouch in the marks department himself, also having a quartet of 28-footers, plus no fewer than 13 meets at 8.40 (27-6¾) or better…

JEFF HENDERSON must like even-numbered years. For the third straight one of those he’s the top-rated American, at No. 6… Right behind Henderson—at least for now—is last year’s U.S. leader, Jarrion Lawson, whose season was cut short by an adverse test result which he insisted came from food contamination… Former world leader Aleksandr Menkov put up marks good enough for consideration somewhere in the middle of the pack, but he falls afoul of our decision not to rank Russians who haven’t had any out-of-country exposure… With no Menkov, that means that Europe doesn’t have a scorer for the first time since ’50.
