On Saturday, Greek champion Militadis Tentoglou won gold in the men’s long jump at the European Games in Krakow. His 8.34 metre leap also earned Greece maximum points for the third time at the European Athletics Team Championships.

He will be again considered one of the favourites to win gold at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest in August.

Speaking to media after his latest victory, the Tokyo Olympics gold medallist stated that the weather conditions were poor and that the wind did not assist, but he was able to repair any mistakes he made in his initial attempts of the day and finally jump his winning 8.34m leap at the end.

Tentoglou said, “That’s what matters to me the most.” His goal is to steadily develop as he approaches the World Championships.

Tentoglou won his third consecutive European indoor gold earlier this year with a leap of 8.30m at the European Indoor Championships in Istanbul, becoming the first male long jumper to accomplish so. He also won it in 2019 and 2021, and he is the current Olympic, European, and global indoor champion.
