    Valencia, Spain – As expected, both 3000m and Long Jump events provided some of the main highlights of Saturday evening’s (9-Feb) ‘Reunión Internacional Ciudad de Valencia’ – IAAF Indoor Permit meeting, which was taking place in the stadium which will host the 12th IAAF World Indoor Championships from 7 – 9 March 2008.

    Ethiopia’s Kenenisa Bekele (7:36.08) and Meselech Melkamu (8:29.48) took honours in the longer distance of the programme while Portugal’s Naide Gomes flew to a PB and national record of 6.90 in the Long Jump and Irving Saladino of Panama kicked off his indoor campaing with an 8.20 effort which is a new world-leading performance, the same feat achieved by Ethiopia’s Mekonnen Gebremedhin in the 1500m thanks to a 3:36.63 time and Nigeria’s Olujosi Fasuba over 60m with a 6.51 clocking.
