Marquise Goodwin recorded a world leading 8.45m long jump in Guadeloupe

Goodwin recorded some outstanding long jumps at the Guadeloupe International Athletics Meeting.

It's looking more and more like Buffalo Bills wide receiver Marquise Goodwin is going to be Rio bound. The Bills have been very supportive of Goodwin and have given the wide receiver their blessing in regards to his attempt to participate in the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics. On Saturday, Goodwin delivered his best performance to date in the long jump.

The wide receiver and Olympic hopeful participated at the Guadeloupe International Athletics Meeting and had long jumps of 8.43 meters, 8.44 meters, and 8.45 meters. All three jumps were wind legal and Goodwin's 8.45m jump is the world leading jump for 2016.

A press release leading up to the event said, "in an effort to help produce world ranking times for this summer's Olympic Games in Rio de Janiero, the running, jumping and throwing surfaces in the Baie-Mahault Stadium have all been re-surfaced, and noted that they "are expecting performances to fly off the chart on the new surface in May."

Goodwin certainly flied off the chart on Saturday.
