He needed only one attempt to qualify for the finals in the long jump at the Pan Am Games in Toronto. Now he awaits the opportunity to medal tonight at 6 pm. While waiting Marquise Goodwin took time to appear on the John Murphy Show to talk about his resurgent track career.

Goodwin, who tweeted that he’d need only one attempt in qualifying to get through to the finals proved true to his word with a jump of 26 feet and change (8.05 meters).

“I was pretty certain and confident in my ability,” Goodwin told the John Murphy Show. “I don’t walk into any competition thinking I’m anything less than the next man. So my confidence was high and kind of expected to do well. I put in a lot of work toward it and I was motivated and ready for the competition.”

The finals for the long jump are Wednesday night at 8 pm and are expected to air on ESPN2.
