Abraham, 23, won his first individual LSC title in the long jump with a leap of 24-8.5 (7.53m) on his second attempt which is the second-best mark in program history – in other words, he holds the second-highest score in the history of the competition.

Also, he is now the only jumper in the program’s history to have jumped over 7.50m in two different competitions in the same season.

Last year in Outdoor competition, Abraham earned All-American honours after finishing fourth in the triple jump at the NCAA Division II Championships in Charlotte, North Carolina with a seasonal best mark of 15.66m (51-4.5) on his first attempt.
