Ahead of next month’s IAAF Continental Cup in Marrakesh,
we interviewed Oceania’s first ever World Cup champion, long jumper Lyn Jacenko
(nee Tillett). The first IAAF World Cup (changed name to IAAF Continental Cup
in 2010) was held in 1977, in Düsseldorf Germany and was the IAAF’s first
global track and field championships and preceded the world championships
(first held in 1983), world indoors, world juniors and world youth championships.
