Former Jamaica junior star jumper Wayne Pinnock is moving to the University of Tennessee this summer.
Pinnock, who won long jump bronze for Jamaica at the Tampere 2018 World U20 Championships, signed a track and field scholarship with University of Tennessee earlier this week.
“Welcome to #RockyTop, Wayne Pinnock,” was how the school’s track and field twitter page described the signing.
Pinnock is also a very successful sprint hurdler. He beat Dejour Russell and his Champs Class 1 record, which he left at 13.06s in 2019.
The KC hero has a personal best of 8.05m. He jumped a wind-assisted (3.9m/s) 8.14m. He is also the 4th best all-time in the 110m hurdles.
