Long jumper stretchered out of sand pit after injury at Shanghai meet


Chinese long jumper Shi Yuhao suffered an apparent foot or ankle injury on his last jump at a Diamond League meet in Shanghai on Saturday and was carried out of the sand pit on a stretcher.

Shi, 19, was poised to upset Olympic and world champions Jeff Henderson of the U.S. and Luvo Manyonga of South Africa until Manyonga overtook him in the final round.

Shi’s attempt to answer Manyonga resulted in injury and a bail out into the sand pit. Shi finished second, after placing sixth at the 2017 World Championships.
