Justin Forde Sets State Record in Triple Jump

Brien McMahon's Justin Forde broke the Connecticut high school state record in the triple jump with his national leading leap of 52'9.75" in the triple jump at the USATF U20 Outdoor Championships this past weekend in Miramar, Florida. The runner-up finish also qualifies him for a spot on the US team at the Pan Am Junior Championships later this summer.

One of the more versatile jumpers one will find locally and nationally as Forde also has personal bests of 6'10" in the high jump and 24'6.25" in the long jump.
