Echevarria, the 19 -year-old world indoor champ, climbed virtually 29 hoofs (8. 83 rhythms ), the longest length recorded in the event in 23 years, Track and Field News reported. Ivan Pedroso hopped 8.96 meters in 1995, but that mark was disagreed over wind gauge breaches and never submitted for ratification.
