MOSCOW -- Former Saluki Bianca Stuart finished 24th in the long jump Saturday morning at the first day of the 14th IAAF World Championships in Moscow.
Stuart, a two-time All-American, a 2012 Olympian at the London Summer Games and the outdoor national record holder in the long jump in the Bahamas, notched a best mark of 6.35m, which was good for 12th in her heat and 24th overall.
Southern still has one former student-athlete in competition over in Russia -- three-time NCAA Champion and 13-time All-American Jeneva McCall. McCall will compete in the hammer throw prelims this upcoming Wednesday (Aug. 14) at 2:10 a.m. CDT (11:10 a.m. local time) in the hopes of repeating her efforts at the World University Games last month, where she became the first American woman to ever medal in the event in international competition with her gold medal victory.
