Cagayan de Oro’s Janry Ubas leaped 7.52 meters to win the gold in long jump during the athletics test event at the newly-built world-class 20,000-seat Athletic Stadium at New Clark City in Pampanga, where the 30th Southeast Asian Games will be held late this year.
The figure was below his personal best of 7.88, but still good enough to put him in first place ahead of Aries Toledo who came is second with 7.49 m followed by Algin Gomez at 6.83 m.

Ubas is the country’s best bet in the long jump event. He won a bronze medal in the same event during the 29th Southeast Asian Games in Kuala Lumpur in 2017.
