, Germany, Feb 4, CMC – Grenadian jumper Randy Lewis set a new national indoor record in winning the men’s triple jump at the opening of the German Indoor Championships in Dortmund last weekend.

Lewis, a seventh place finisher at the 2007 Pan American Games in Brazil, produced an indoor personal best jump of 17.10 metres to take the top spot and better his previous best of 17.04 metres.

The 29-year old Germany-based Grenadian is hoping to participate in some more international meets ahead of the World Indoor Championships in Spain in March.

“This was a successful dress rehearsal as I prepare for the World Indoors where I hope to win a medal,” Lewis said.

Lewis will again compete here this weekend when he jumps at a meet in Karlsruhe on Sunday.
