Venezuela's Yulimar Rojas has set a world record - the first to be broken in athletics at the Tokyo Games - as she won Olympic gold in the triple jump.
BBC News reports Rojas who is the silver medallist at Rio 2016, jumped 15.67m to smash the previous best of 15.50m set by Ukraine's Inessa Kravets in 1995 - two months before Rojas was born.
The 25-year-old says she is lost for words and can't describe this feeling and this moment.
Rojas' achievements, which include world titles in 2017 and 2019, means she is already a national hero in Venezuela, where a mural depicting her leaping over Angel Falls has been painted in the capital Caracas, near to where she grew up.
