Dessau-Roßlau (dpa) - Long jump world champion Malaika Mihambo also shone with a shortened run at the Anhalt meeting in Dessau.

In front of 1000 spectators in the Paul Greifzu Stadium, the “Sportswoman of the Year” reached 7.03 meters and thus sat at the top of the world's best list.

Javelin ace Johannes Vetter missed his next 90-meter throw.

The 27-year-old from LG Offenburg still won with 86.17 meters.

Andrian Mardare from Moldova came in second with 84.41 meters.

Olympic champion Thomas Röhler from Jena had previously announced that he would no longer compete this summer.

On Sunday in Chorzow / Poland, Vetter had reached the second best distance in athletics history with 97.76 meters and also clearly exceeded his German record of 94.44 meters.

So far, only the Czech Jan Zelezny has been better than the 2017 world champion with his world record on May 25, 1996 in Jena with 98.48 meters.

As announced, Mihambo started with 16 instead of 20 steps - but still cheered loudly.

With her 7.03 meter sentence, she put a big exclamation mark.

«I have no idea, I think that I can manage to be quick from the short run.

7.03 meters - wow!

I'm really excited, ”said Mihambo, beaming.

The World Cup second Marina Bech-Romantschuk from Ukraine came to 6.85 meters.

Third was Belarusian Nastassija Mirontschyk-Iwanowa, who was at the top of the international corona season with 6.94 meters to date.

After a strong final sprint, Yupun Abeykoon Mudiyanselag from Sri Lanka surprisingly won the 100 meters in 10.16 seconds ahead of the German champions Deniz Almas from VfL Wolfsburg (10.18).
