Miltiadis Tentoglou won the gold medal in men’s long jump at the European Games in Krakow, Poland on Saturday with a 8.34 metre jump.
Tentoglou won precious points for Greece in the European Athletics Team Championships, which are being held as part of the European Games.
His jump was the best in Europe this year and Tentoglou is now one of the favourites for gold at August’s World Athletics Championships in Budapest.
After the match, the Greek athlete said: “It felt very good, a strong jump with a 1.34 negative wind is great for me.”
“I’ve never jumped so much in such bad wind and you can see because no one else cleared 8 metres today and I jumped 8.30 – so I feel great,” he said.
