National female long jumper Mariah Toussaint didn’t make it out of the qualifying round in the Women’s Long jump as action continued Friday at the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games.
Chasing a mark of at least 6.75 meters to automatically qualify for Sunday’s final Toussaint jumping in Group A, got off to a slow start, as she fouled her first attempt.
Jumping a second time, Toussaint again missed her run-up and fouled her attempt.
Needing to get a jump of just over 6 meters to at least finish in the top 12 to qualify for the finals, Toussaint again struggled with her run-up missing her mark, and foul her 3rd and final attempt to end her medal campaign on a sad note.
