Long jumpers put on a great show at the World Championships in Athletics in Budapest. Switzerland’s Simon Ehmer was disappointed by the early elimination in ninth place and then upset by the new set of rules. Otherwise, the audience was well amused.
It was only in the final jump that Olympic and European champion Miltiadis Tetoglu ousted Jamaican Wayne Pennock from the lead with a jump of 8.52 metres. The difference of just two centimeters was the toughest decision in the history of the World Cup. Even more spectacular than the Greek victory’s leap was the unintentional flight by Carey MacLeod.
The Jamaican runner, who finished fourth in the competition, slipped just before take-off and flew first. He reached about eight meters in length, but his attempt was invalid because of the infringement. The 25-year-old appeared to be unharmed.

August 14, 2022. In the match between Chelsea and Tottenham, the “Blues” drew 2-1 when Tottenham’s Christian Romero pulled his opponent Mark Cucurella by the hair inside his team’s penalty area. Chelsea wanted a penalty kick, but referee Anthony Taylor’s whistle sounded silent. And VAR Mike Dean doesn’t communicate either. So Chelsea did not reach the victory 3: 1. On the contrary: a few moments later, Tottenham equalized, making the score 2-2.
