Article excerpt

Teesside track star Rabah Yusuf switched to the long jump to make a massive impact in a British League event when competing for Newham and Essex Beagles. The Sudanese-born athlete won the long jump with an amazing leap of 7.61 metres.

Coach Carol Williams said: "Rabah is essentially a 400 metres runner and he's started well because he won the race in 46.80 seconds, which was two seconds faster than his opening time last year. He went into the long jump purely for the sake of the team, and obviously this leap has astounded a lot of people. It has put him right up there in the lists, so it gives us something to think about. But he will continue to concentrate on his 400 metres because this can be a big season for him."

Fellow Teessider Suote Nyananyo, also representing Newham and Essex Beagles, was second in the B long jump with a leap of 6.82. He was also second in the 110m hurdles B race in 14.93sec.
