India’s Jeswin Aldrin claimed the Golden Fly Series Liechtenstein title with a leap of 8.12m in the men’s Long jump on Sunday. The jump is now his best jump outside of India. He participated in the Spitzen Leichtathletik 2022, last month, where he finished fourth with a jump of 7.82m. Earlier, the long jumper had recorded jumps of 8.37m (+4.01 wind assisted) and 8.26m at this year’s Federation Cup to win the championship. However, his performances dipped as a result of which the Athletics Federation of India (AFI) initially omitted him from the World Championships 2022 squad. He was later added to the team after he reappeared for two trials. In the World Championships 2022, he failed to proceed to the finals of the tournament, registering a best attempt of 7.79m.

In the men’s Pole Vault, EJ Obiena swept the Liechtenstein leg of the Golden Fly Series to claim his fifth gold in the last seven competitions. Obiena cleared 5.71 meters to win the event consisting of six participants. In the previous week, the Filipino athlete had to settle for a silver at the ISTAF Berlin in Germany. However, Obiena has been on a great run over the past few weeks, including an upset win over world champion Armand Duplantis in a Diamond League match in Brussels, Belgium. He has finished on the top of the podium in all of his last seven games.
