KARLSRUHE (GER): Cuban long jump star Juan Miguel Echevarria has been confirmed for the Indoor Meeting Karlsruhe on 2 February. The Cuban, who jumped a marginally wind-aided 8.83m last year, will be back to defend his title after it was last year the prelude to his world indoor win. Germany’s European silver medallist Fabian Heinle and four-time German champion Julian Howard will provide opposition in the sell-out second meeting of the IAAF World Indoor Tour.
