VISSER LEAPS TO SEASON’S BEST
Zarck Visser took another step forward in his comeback from injury on Saturday night, winning the men’s long jump at the Night of Athletics meeting in Heusden-Zolder, Belgium.
The Commonwealth Games silver medallist, who was omitted from the national Olympic team this week after struggling to find top form, delivered a 7.90m effort in the third round, adding nine centimetres to the season’s best he set in Lokeren two weeks earlier.
Visser remained well off his best, however, after setting a career record of 8.41m last season.
Luis Rivera of Mexico, the 2013 World Championships bronze medallist, took second place with a 7.73m leap.
