Zango also entered athletic history as the first African (man) to set an official world record outside or indoors in one of the jumping disciplines.
“Zang’s record surprised me a lot, he jumped in the first start of the season, which has never happened before,” commented the best Slovak triple jumper Tomáš Veszelka.
“After such a performance, I am worried that Edwards’ absolute record of 18.29 m will break even in the indoor season. Now the whole world will be waiting for what he will show in the next starts and then outside, “Veszelka added for atletika.sk.
According to the mentioned website, Slovak athletic fans could also see the new world recorder Zang with their own eyes.
