Puma signed the current long jump World Champion Tajay Gayle. He recently competed at the 2019 Doha World Athletics Championships where he took home the gold medal for his 8.69m mark, making him the first Jamaican athlete to win first place in the long jump at a World Championship.

“Tajay is one of the best young talents out there,” said Pascal Rolling, head of running sports marketing for Puma. “He recently accomplished a great feat during the recent World Champs, and we are sure he will perform great during 2020. He shares all of our brand values, making him the perfect new addition to our roster of Track and Field athletes.”

“I’m so honored and happy to join the Puma family, just like Usain Bolt,” said Tajay. “I’ve been working hard since I was a kid to accomplish my objectives, and this is definitely one of them. I can’t explain how exciting this is for me. This new stage will allow me to prove to everyone that I’m the best in the game.”
