All three victors of the jumping events in Karlsruhe won with relative ease, all setting world-leading marks in the process.

Cuba’s Liadagmis Povea opened the triple jump with 14.16m, which was matched by her compatriot Leyanis Perez-Hernandez. The latter then went out to 14.45m, while Povea jumped 14.43m. But Povea went further in the third round, setting an indoor PB of 14.64m. That remained the best mark of the day, but she consolidated her lead with 14.52m in round five.

USA’s KC Lightfoot notched up his first ever victory at the World Indoor Tour meeting, winning the pole vault with 5.83m. The 23-year-old cleared all of his heights on his first attempt, up to and including 5.83m.

Australia’s Kurtis Marschall and Greece’s Emmanouil Karalis also cleared that height, an indoor PB for the latter, but they had some failures earlier in the competition.
