MADRID, Spain- On the heels of her historic Pan Am Games gold medal in the Women’s Long Jump, Virgin Islands athlete Chantel E. Malone competed in the Madrid Athletics Meeting in Spain on August 25, 2019 and added another gold medal to her tally.

Malone cut the sand at 6.56 metres to win the Women’s Long Jump final ahead of Chanice Porter of Jamaica, who was second with a leap of 6.51 metres.

Third was Monica Vicente of Spain (6.49 metres).

Malone later commented on her Facebook page, “It was ugly today but got the Win in Madrid, Spain tonight! More to come!”

Malone won Pan Am gold with a leap of 6.68 metres at the Estadio Nacional, in Lima, Peru on August 6, 2019.
