Ivana Spanovic denied long jump medal at World Championships after her number fell off in the sand pit



Serbia's Ivana Spanovic missed out on a World Championship medal after her appeal against her recorded distance of 6.91m in Friday night’s women’s final was rejected.
The 27-year-old looked to have taken gold by leaping beyond the 7.02m that would earn first place for America’s Brittney Reese.
However, the number on Spanovic’s back flapped loose and, in accordance with the rules, her mark was given at the point where that made contact with the sand - 6.91m. Spanovic had to settle for fourth.
