Editor's Comment: Saladino jumped 8.34 m to win the Gold Medal in 2008. It's great to see he won this last warm-up competition in Monaco. As the defending Gold Medal winner, Saladino is clearly the guy everyone else is going to have to beat in London. I have high hopes for him. I think the victory is already "in his head" if you know what I mean. The difference between these guys comes down to that extra little bit - who wants to fly further - more mental than physical. It seems like Saladino might be ready to peak at the right time. I mean, no pressure - he's already won the first Olympic Gold Medal in history for Panama. Now he can just go uncork and have fun, jump with a smile on his face. We'll all be watching.
