LGBTQ Olympic Gold and World Record just now in women's athletics (warning, spoiler)

Yulimar Rojas collapses after breaking triple jump world record to win Olympic gold

Venezuela's Yulimar Rojas smashed the triple jump world record in the Olympic final.


Yulimar Rojas secured the triple jump world record with her last jump in the Olympic final before celebrating wildly. The Venezuela star was the heavy favourite heading into the final and had already secured the gold medal with her very first jump of 15.41m. That was just shy of the world record held by Inessa Kravets set in 1995.

It was clear with every jump after first first successful attempt, Rojas was going for the world record. None of the competitors were able to come close to her first jump, giving Rojas the opportunity to try. And she sailed over the world-record mark in her third attempt, only to foul out by stepping over the board.

It looked as though the world record attempt was going to evade Rojas though heading into her final attempt. The small crowd of coaches and fellow athletes in the stadium were fully behind her as Rojas bounded down the runway one last time.

It looked as though Rojas had pulled out of the jump on the bound stage, but she somehow pulled out an insane jump to climb over the world record mark. Rojas knew it from the moment she stood out of the pit and it was soon confirmed that her massive jump measured 15.67m.
