Tyrone Smith Finishes 7th in France
It was a bittersweet Friday night at the Meeting Herculis in Monaco, the ninth stop of this year’s IAAF Diamond League.

A minute’s silence was observed at the start of the meeting to honour the victims of the attack in nearby Nice on Thursday. All athletes wore a black ribbon on their bib, while all officials wore a black ribbon on their arm.

Before Monaco, Jamaica’s Damar Forbes had only ever recorded one win on the IAAF Diamond League circuit. But he looked like a seasoned winner in as he opened up with three eight-metre jumps that none of the field could respond to.

Tyrone Smith finished 7th with a top leap of 7.56m, Forbes finished first with a top leap of 8.23m, Fabrice Lapierre from Australia was second with a top leap of 8.21m and China's Xinglong Gao was third leaping 8.00m.
