The European champion on indoor track, in 2021, and outdoors, in 2016, jumped 14.54 meters in the first attempt and 'stamped' her presence in the 'triple' final, on Sunday, in which she will try to improve her sixth place in Rio2016, without the 'competition' of compatriot Evelise Veiga, for whom the best brand of the year (13.93) was insufficient.
Evelise Veiga, who unsuccessfully tried to qualify for the long jump final, was 19th among the 33 participants and was unable to repeat with Patrícia Mamona as seen in the last Olympic Games, with the Portuguese double clearance for the final, with Susana Costa finishing in ninth place at Rio2016.
Additionally, Auriol Dongmo 'dispatched' the qualification in the first test, throwing the shot 18.80 meters, precisely the mark for qualifying for the final, also scheduled for Sunday, but at 10:35 (02:35) . The European indoor champion arrived in Tokyo with the fifth record of the year, with a national record of 19.75 meters, achieved in Huelva, Spain, on 3 June, having qualified in eighth place.
In Enoshima Bay, sailors Jorge Lima and José Costa, in 49er, and Diogo Costa and Pedro Costa, in 470, won regattas today, justifying their ambition to be present in the fights for the medals of their respective classes. The experienced Jorge Lima and José Costa prevailed in the last of the races played today, redeeming themselves from the disqualification the day before, after 10th place in the first, ending the day in sixth place. The top 10 will fight for the medals, scheduled for Monday.
