Sarajevo Jumps

MONTE CARLO () -- Olympic champion Kenny Harrison and world record holder Jonathan Edwards will both take part in a triple jump competition at the Solidarity Meeting for Sarajevo on Sept. 9.


The International Amateur Athletic Federation said Friday that a schedule reshuffle had allowed organizers to hold a men's triple jump as well as the women's long jump on the "one usable runway at the war-devastated" Kosevo stadium.


Atlanta Games silver medal winner Edwards has called on other leading athletes to take part in the Sarajevo meeting as a goodwill gesture towards Bosnia as it recovers from the war in the Balkans. The event will take place two days after the grand prix final in Milan.
