Serbia’s Vuleta claims world long jump gold with season’s best jump

Ivana Vuleta, a 33-year-old Serbian athlete, achieved her first long jump gold medal at the World Athletics Championships in Budapest. Throughout her career, Vuleta had consistently won bronze medals, but this victory marked a significant milestone for her. On her fifth jump out of six, she soared an impressive 7.14 meters, which was the best jump in the world for the season. Vuleta attributed her success to her experience, stating that it was challenging to maintain her performance at her age. She expressed gratitude for being able to utilize her accumulated experience, which she considered her greatest asset.

In previous competitions, Vuleta had won bronze medals at the 2013 and 2015 World Championships, as well as the 2016 Rio Olympics, where she secured Serbia’s first athletics medal. Tara Davis-Woodhall from the United States claimed the silver medal with a jump of 6.91 meters in her debut at the senior world championships. Alina Rotaru-Kottmann from Romania won the bronze medal with a jump of 6.88 meters.

Vuleta expressed her joy and emotions after achieving her long-awaited dream of winning a gold medal. She described the weight of the medal and cherished every moment of the competition. Despite her numerous years in the sport and multiple medals, Vuleta had always aspired to win a gold medal in an outdoor championship. She mentioned that the only gold missing from her collection was an Olympic gold, which she considered the final mission of her athletics career.

Unfortunately, reigning Olympic and world champion Malaika Mihambo from Germany was unable to compete due to injury. Vuleta had previously found more success in indoor competitions, winning two world indoor titles. However, she had a disappointing seventh-place finish at the world outdoor championships in Eugene the previous year.

In conclusion, Ivana Vuleta’s long jump gold medal at the World Athletics Championships marked a significant achievement in her career. She attributed her success to her experience and expressed her joy and emotions after finally achieving her dream. Vuleta’s victory added to her collection of bronze medals from previous championships, and she now aims to complete her mission by winning an Olympic gold medal.
