2018 European Athletics Championships – Women’s Long Jump

Every year, at different times, there are various competitions put together in different parts of the world, and the most outstanding contestants get rewards for their display of sportsmanship. These competitions are usually a test of fitness, endurance, strength, perseverance, and team spirit. One big competition organized for this purpose is the European Athletics Championships and is known for attracting people from all over the world to witness and participate in it. The biennial competition has been going on since 2010; however, in 2018 there will be a change, as instead of being a standalone event, the European Athletics Championships will get integrated into a bigger event called the “European Championships”, and it will cover every sport, not just athletics alone.

2018 European Athletic Championships is slated to begin from 7th August 2018 to 12th August 2018, in Berlin, at the Olympiastadion. This stadium is renowned for its prestige and for hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2006 Final, and the UEFA Champions League Final in 2015, among many other notable events that have taken place there.

Long Jump

Long jump is a very old event that dates back to 708 B.C. and was one of the sports that belonged to the pentathlon event that usually took place in the Olympics in ancient Greece. Back then, when competitors were performing, they usually used weights called halteres which they held in front as the jumped, and on descent, they would throw the halteres behind them. It was believed that the halteres contributed to the longer distance achieved by the jumpers.

Modern-day long jump began in 1896, and since then it has experienced tremendous growth and improvement. 1912 saw the creation of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) which was the governing body for track and field sports.

Women’s Long jump

The long jump event was considered a men’s sport for a very long time, until 1928, in Amsterdam where women were given the first opportunity to compete, and thus began the full involvement of women in the sport. For a long time, even though the women were involved, they were no major medals from them. East Germany and the Soviet Union had the privilege of being the top countries that had successful long jumpers, and in 1988, Jackie Joyner-Kersee won gold, and that contributed immensely to the development of the women’s long jump.

The 2018 European Athletics Championships Women’s Long Jump will see women athletes from different parts of Europe coming together to compete. The Women’s long jump will have two rounds. The first round will take place on the second day of the event which is Thursday, 9th August, 2018, at 10:30, the long jump hep will take place on the fourth day of the event which is Friday, 10th August, 2018, at 10:50. The final event will happen on the fifth day of the event, which is Saturday, 11th August, 2018.

The event has enjoyed massive publicity, tickets are being sold, and preparations are underway to ensure that this event is a memorable one.
