Etienne at the Pan American Junior Championships

Yesterday at the XIX Pan American Junior Championships, Jyles Etienne ’17 jumped 7′ 1″ to secure 5th place in a deep high jump field comprising nine different countries.

Competitors could come in as low as 5′ 10.75″, but Etienne entered the field at 6′ 8.75″, clearing it on his first attempt. He followed with a second attempt clear at 6′ 10.75″ before passing at 6′ 11.75″. He cleared 7′ 1″ on his second attempt and then fell three straight times at 7′ 2.25″, which would have been a personal outdoor record (he jumped 7′ 2.5″ indoors in May).

Etienne has had pain in his plant foot since his US #1 jump of 7′ 2.5″ on May 6th, and he still was not back to full strength for yesterday’s competition, making his 7′ 1″ all the more impressive. This is likely Etienne’s last event before attending Indiana University in the fall.
