Iván Pedroso poses on the hood of a Mercedes in Havana, Cuba on April 24, 2000. The Cuban athlete spectacularly won the gold medal for Long Jump with his last attempt in 2000 Sydney Olympics. At the dark of Lewis and Powell, at altitude in Sestriere in 1995, Iván Pedroso jumped 8.96 meters with a measured wind of +1.2. This would have been the World Record, beating Mike Powell by one centimeter. However, the Italian Athletics Federation did not forward the result to the IAAF for ratification, since the wind mark was declared invalid because a person stood in front of the anemometer, probably intercepting the correct wind measurement. For this record Pedroso received a Ferrari car that he has never used on the Cuban ways.See all photos from Franco Origlia
