QA2 Max PODCAST: Arkansas World-Leading Long Jumper Jarrion Lawson
NEW ORLEANS — This past weekend at the Razorback Team Invitational, Arkansas senior Jarrion Lawson came up clutch.
On his fifth attempt in the long jump — the second of a tightly-contested final — Lawson soared 8.17m (26-9 3/4).
It was at that moment Lawson found himself not only on top of the NCAA leaderboard, but on top of the world’s.
Lawson also set a personal best in the 60 at the same meet. His time of 6.62 has him in a tie for fifth nationally.
How far does Lawson think he can soar in 2016?
Was Lawson happy that 2015 Bowerman Award winner Marquis Dendy graduated? After all, Lawson finished second twice to Dendy last year at NCAA championships.
And speaking of rivalries, we got to thinking about the best rivalries of this indoor track & field season. We give you four.
