Jamaica’s Tajay Gayle challenged one of the best long jumpers in the world in London on Saturday for a second-place finish.

Gayle leapt out to 8.32 metres but was bested by a jump of 8.37 from South Africa’s Luvo Manyonga.

Manyongo’s effort was a season’s best, while Gayle had never been out to such a distance before.

Another South African, Ruswahl Samaai, 8.11. was third, while Greece’s Miltiadis Tentoglou, 7.99, was fourth and the United States Trumaine Jefferson, fifth with 7.89.

Rounding out the field was Great Britain’s Jacob Fincham-Dukes, 7.70 for sixth, teammate Dan Bramble, 7.61, and Australia’s Henry Smith, 7.57.
