Swedish superstar nails M40 world indoor record in the long jump
Mattias can move, too.
Sunday in Stockholm, M40 pentathlon WR
holder Mattias Sunneborn
long-jumped 7.59 meters (24-11) at the indoor Raka SpГҐret meet (which translates to “straight track”). That beats the listed M40 world indoor record of 7.52 (24-8 1/4) by Britain’s Barrington Williams
in 1996. Results of the Swedish meet are here.
According to Wikipedia, “Mattias Sunneborn (born 27 September 1970 in Bunge, Gotland) is a Swedish long jumper. His personal best jump is 8.21 metres (26-11 1/4), achieved in June 1996 in MalmГ¶. This is the current Swedish record. He still competes on national level.” Congrats to Mattias, and thanks to Anthony Treacher
, who shared the news from Sweden.
Mattias’ second jump was the boomer. Not a bad jump at age 42.
