Hamilton (Bermuda), June 18 (IANS/CMC) Bermudian long jumper Tyrone Smith has qualified for the World Athletics Championships in Moscow, leaping to a season's best 8.13 metres at a meet in Poland.

Smith's jump saw him finish second at the 59th Janusz Kusocinski Memorial Meet in Szczecin, reports CMC.

Smith, 28, a two-time Olympian, recently won at a meet in France, and placed fourth in the Czech Republic.

He tweeted: "Just qualified for Moscow 2013 with a new season's best 8.13m!
