Chapman makes her Commonwealth Games debut on Day 4

Women's Long Jump Qualification

Rebecca Chapman (Cardiff AAC) made her Commonwealth Games debut for Team Wales on the Gold Coast in the Women's Long Jump Qualification on Wednesday morning. Chapman had 3 jumps to try and achieve the auto qualifying mark of 6.60m or to get herself in the top 12 qualifying positions. She got off toa solid start in the first round, jumping 5.94m before improving to 6.02m in the second round. On her thrid and final jump, she charged down the runway looking for a massive jump, but it wasn't quite to be as she jumped 4.42m to finish in 15th place. Nevertheless, the welsh record holder can be proud of her debut on the Commonwealth stage for Wales, and will have gained inavaluable experience moving forwards towards future championships.
