‘Woo Sang-hyuk rival’ Harrison misses out on 4th place at U.S. Team Trials…wins Macon

Jubon Harrison (25), one of the big four in the men’s high jump, finished fourth at the U.S. Olympic Trials for the Paris 2024 Games.

Harrison cleared 2 meters (24 feet) in the men’s high jump final at the U.S. Track and Field Trials for the Paris Olympics at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon, U.S., on Monday (local time).

It was a “low” mark that was far off his personal best of 2 meters (36 feet) and his best of the year of 2 meters (34 feet).

Shelby McCuean won the final at 2.30 meters, while Caleb Snowden was second at 2.27 meters.

Tus Wilson cleared the same height as Harrison, 2.24 meters, but had fewer “failures” and finished third.

There will be 32 athletes competing in the men’s high jump at the Olympic Games in Paris.

The first athlete to clear 2.33 meters between July 1, 2023, and June 30, 2024, or the highest ranked athlete in the Paris Olympic rankings, will earn a ticket to Paris.

A maximum of three athletes per country can compete in the men’s high jump.

Harrison didn’t make the top three at the U.S. trials, but he has a good chance of qualifying for Paris.

McCuean, who cleared the Paris Olympic standard during the “record clearance period,” won the U.S. Trials on Sunday to secure his spot in Paris.

Snowden and Wilson, however, have never cleared 2.33 meters.

Snowden was ranked 64th and Wilson 49th in the men’s high jump at the Paris Olympics, including athletes who cleared the standard, so they did not qualify.

It’s likely that USA Track & Field will include Harrison in the U.S. team because he is the only jumper in the first three spots on the U.S. team that has either cleared the Paris Olympic standard or is in the top 32 of the Olympic rankings.

Harrison cleared the Paris Olympic standard early, placing second at 2.36 meters at the World Championships in Budapest last August.

Harrison is one of the “big four” jumpers in the men’s high jump, along with South Korea‘s Woo Sang-hyuk (Yongin City Hall), Mutaz Essa Barshim (Qatar), and Jean-Marco Tamberi (Italy).

He is favored to qualify for the Paris Olympics, but his fourth-place finish at the U.S. trials was a disappointment. 토토사이트 순위
