Juška breaks own national record in long jump


Radek Juška has set a new Czech record in the long jump for the second time this year. The athlete, who is 24, achieved a new best of 831 centimetres at the Summer Universiade in Taipei on Sunday. That distance was 2 centimetres longer than a jump he made in May.

Juška’s achievement in China was the seventh best jump in the world this year and the second best by a European.
