Castro Valley HS's Nate Moore jumps 53'7" at USA Jr Outdoor Track and Field Meet

The jump was wind-aided (3.0) but it surpasses the longest triple jump in California history in all conditions. The previous mark was 53'6.5" by Pasadena HS's Joe Richardson in 1984. Unfortunately for Nate, the qualifying mark for the World Jr. Championships is 51'2.25" and he does not have a wind legal mark this season past that standard. You can read a bit more about that by Ken Goe of The Oregonian here

Here is an interview with Nate following the long jump competition the day before.
