    Wow! :shock: Good for him!

    I wouldn't have been surprised if he never got out of the 8.3xs

    That's quite the NR for Tomlinson (sp?) to chase now.

    Hmm... I think I'll call him a 8.51 jumper 'cause he just jumped it.

    Your philosophy is curious.
    You there, on the motorbike! Sell me one of your melons!

    ?????? :?
    IMO, 8.51 is serious jumping, no matter the meet or competition.
    I haven't checked the rankings lately but at one time I had worked competitions that included eight of the top ten long jumpers in history (No, not all in same competition) and I have not seen that many 8.5 jumps.

    All 850 jumpers from the last ten and a bit years (starting with the 2004 season)...

    878w Fabrice Lapierre AUS (850+ in 2 wind-aided competitions; legal best 840)
    874 Dwight Phillips USA (850+ in 9 competitions + 2 wind-aided)
    873 Irving Saladino PAN (850+ in 8 competitions + 2 wind-aided)
    871i Sebastian Bayer GER (850+ in 1 indoor competition; outdoor best 849)
    866 Loúis Tsátoumas GRE (850+ in 2 competitions)
    856 Aleksandr Menkov RUS (850+ in 1 competition; 2nd best 842)
    854 Mitchell Watt AUS (850+ in 1 competition; 2nd best 845)
    851w Ignisious Gaisah GHA/NED (850+ in 1 wind-aided competition; legal best 843)
    850 Godfrey Mokoena RSA (850+ in 1 competition; 2nd best 847)

    ...and now Rutherford (2nd best 835). It's not easy to jump 850 even once, no matter how good the conditions or how small the meet. Besides, Rutherford's 835 in 2012 was also from Chula Vista, and while he did fail to match it in "serious" competition he won Olympic gold that year.

    That said, there's a clear division to those who only reached 850 once or twice, and those who could do it repeatedly (i.e. Phillips and Saladino). So far it's pretty clear which group Rutherford belongs to, and he's the only one on the list with no backup at 84x.

    Not fair though, he has only been an 8.5 jumper for a day now, give him some time to confirm before you declare him a one time wonder.
