STOCKHOLM (SWE): Juan Miguel Echevarria "is not thinking" about the nine metre line despite producing the world's longest jump since 1995 with a marginally wind-aided 8.83m in Stockholm. "Today, I wanted over 8.50m but I didn't think I could jump so far! I want to jump at this level for a long time but it's early season so I will just take it all step by step. I'm not even thinking about nine meters - I will have to keep working very hard in order to jump that, it is a huge barrier," he said. Echevarria will also compete in Ostrava on Wednesday evening where World record holder Mike Powell and European record holder Robert Emmiyan are guests of honour and will add spice to the competition.
