PEDROSO Yvan (1972) Cuba / Track and Field
Three times world long jump champion, the Cuban Yvan Pedroso only dreamed of one thing on his arrival in Sydney: winning the gold medal that should be rightfully his and which he missed out in in Barcelona, winning a bronze, and in Atlanta where, injured, he finished in last place in the final.Record holder for jumps further than 8,50 m, the Cuban is one of the best long jumpers of all time. He should have held the world record after a jump of 8,96 m during a meeting in Italy, but his jump was not ratified.After a formidable battle with Australian opponent Taurima, Yvan Pedroso's dream came true at the Sydney games in 2000, where he won the gold medal: justice was done.
