Registe exceeds expectations, makes finals at Commonwealth Games
The 26-year-old long jumper representing his native Caribbean country, Dominica, finished fifth in Group B to qualify for the finals at the Commonwealth Games.
Registe, of Colony High fame, jumped 25 feet, 2 inches, about half a foot off his personal best.
He qualified 10th out of 12 jumpers to make Wednesday’s finals.
The former NCAA D2 national champion from UAA easily bettered his No. 10 pre-meet ranking among the dozen dudes he faced today.
