Legendary American track and field athlete Mike Powell is the international event ambassador of the 2016 TCS World 10K Bengaluru, the world’s richest 10K run to be held on May 15. The 52-year-old mesmerised the sporting world in his heyday and won silver in back-to-back Olympics, Seoul 1988 and Barcelona 1992 in long jump.
At the 1991 World Championships in Athletics held in Tokyo, he set a new world record in long jump, registering 8.95m. Two and a half decades on, the record still stands intact. The TCS World 10K Bengaluru is proud to have the two-time world champion and three-time Olympian as its event ambassador.
