Kendricks wins 2018 Prefontaine against world class field

Congratulations to Sam Kendricks who won the 2018 Prefontaine Diamond League meet in Eugene, OR this past Friday. Sam jumped 5.81 (19’ ¾”) to take first place in a field that included the reigning Olympic Champion (Thiago Braz) and five former world champions (S. Kendricks, USA; P. Wojciechowski, POL; S. Barber, CAN; R. Holdzeppe, DEU; R. Lavillenie, FRA), including the world record holder. This marks the second year in a row that Kendricks has won the Prefontaine Classic.

One of the newest members of Team ESSX, 2013 World Champion Pawel Wojciechowski of Poland, finished the competition in 4th with a season’s best jump of 5.56 (18’3”).
