ANDERSON GREAVES’ stunning leap in the long jump was the first of many records to fall on Saturday evening when the Joseph Payne Memorial Classic was staged at the National Stadium.

Greaves set a new meet record of 7.09 metres in the Under-18 boys’ long jump, surpassing the CARIFTA Games qualifying standard of 6.85 metres. Ondre Callender of Rising Stars was second with 6.78 metres while Jonathan Miller of BC Trac was third with 6.15 metres. Callender was the previous record holder with a 6.26 metre jump he set last year.

In all, 12 new meet records were established and two other record-breakers met the CARIFTA grade.
