Marquis Dendy told us that the track was so fast that he had some difficulty getting his timing and steps down. Finally, on his fifth jump, Marquis let loose, and voila!, an 8.41 meter leap, the farthest in the world.
Marquis Dendy was interviewed at the 2016 USATF Presser preceeding the World Indoor Champs, on March 16, 2016. This video was done by the Shoe Addicts, the digital partners of the RunningNetwork and RunBlogRun.
We hope you enjoy the interview.
