Smith recorded a Foul on his first attempt, but followed that with a 7.63m on his second attempt. Smith then had back to back Fouls, before his only jump on the board measured at 7.82m. Smith then closed out with a leap of 7.78m, the event was won by Luvo Manyonga from South Africa with a leap of 8.62m, Rushwal Samaai also from South Africa was second with a top leap of 8.34m and Jamaican Damar Forbes finished 3rd with a top leap of 8.29m.
