Caceres jumps windy 8.31m in Toledo | 24.07.2012
The up and coming 20-year-old from Alicante produced a leap of 8.31m (+2.1) on his final attempt, having previously recorded 7.99m with a legal following wind in the penultimate round.
His final jump could not be recorded due to the excessive following wind, but is a sign of the youngster's potential.
Caceres was equally unlucky with a favourable wind in the London Diamond League recently when his final round leap of 8.16 was boosted by a reading just over the limit of +2.1.
This came just over an hour after Caceres came a close second in the 100m final, with a time of 10.37, having been pipped on the line by Bruno Hortelano (10.36).
This puts Hortelano and Caceres fifth and sixth respectively in the list of all time fastest U23 100m sprinters in Spain.
As an 18 year old, Caceres exploded onto the scene at the 2010 Barcelona European Athletics Championships when he hit the sand at 8.27 for a European junior record in the qualifiers.
Pestano in good form in the run up to the Games
Mario Pestano will look to continue the good run of form he has been enjoying when he competes in London in two weeks, having won in the Canary Islands championships.
The 34-year-old discus thrower from Tenerife recorded 67.15m, making him equal 12th best thrower in the world this year, and a mark that will surely give him confidence in the run up to the Games.
The Spaniard recorded his personal best of 69.50m in 2008, the same year as he finished ninth in the discus final at the Beijing Olympic Games (with a throw of 63.42), and will want to improve on that this time round.
Lopez sets Spanish 800m record
The Spanish 800m record of 1:43.83, which had stood since being set in Madrid by Antonio Reina in 2002, was finally bettered on Friday by Kevin Lopez.
The 22 year old recorded a time of 1:43.74 at the Diamond League meeting in Monaco last Friday, establishing himself on the world scene as the eighth fastest man over the distance this year and the fastest in Europe.
