UK Athletics are now pleased to confirm the complete details of November ‘s Jumps Conference, at Loughborough University on Saturday and Sunday 8-9 November.


Already confirmed is American World Record Holder in the Long Jump, Mike Powell. He told of his great enthusiasm for the event and what it can offer:


"I am excited to be a part of the Ron Pickering Memorial Fund World Class Jumps Conference in November, he said. 


“I have had a long personal association with the Pickering family dating back to the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic games. My summer job while a student/athlete at UCLA was acting as a driver for the BBC and its commentary team – and it is great to work alongside others to deliver this conference.”


Working in partnership with the Ron Pickering Memorial Fund the sport has focused on offering a World Class opportunity in each Jumps event area.
