Mokoena returns to form in Germany
Former Olympic silver medallist Khotso Mokoena made an impressive comeback on Saturday night to win the men’s long jump event at the IAAF World Indoor Tour meeting in Karlsruhe, Germany.
Mokoena, who had struggled to find his best form last year after focussing on the triple jump discipline, produced a best leap of 8.05m to secure victory.
He was seven centimetres clear of German athlete Julian Howard who took second place.
The fourth of five legs in the World Indoor Tour series will be held on Torun, Poland on Friday.
