Pedroso, Sydney 2000 Olympic Champion, jumped on 7.92 meters Thursday in his first official competition with a new impulse race of 14 steps, before going to Europe for a tour.
"I have already come out of the obstacles I had, I have finished my training satisfactorily, I am in good shape, with shorter steps, and I needed to jump like I did to become confident before going to Europe," he said.
After Pedroso, Cuban athletes Jairo Guibert (7.63) and Reñiré Reyes (7.51) were second and third.
