Israeli triple-jumper qualifies for medal round at World Championships

One of Israel's athletes made the country proud over the weekend at the start of the IAAF World Championships in Beijing.
Triple-jumper Hanna Knyazyeva-Minenko secured a place in the final competition in her sport with just one jump.
The Israeli recorded a jump of 14.27 meters, which was good enough to qualify for the medal round.
Knyazyeva-Minenko was far from her national record of 14.61 meters, which she reached earlier this year. She will need to come close to matching that feat if she hopes to win a medal.
