Rojas recalled that his winning brand is his second best ever, only behind the 15,41 he obtained last month in Andújar (Spain).
“I am super happy and I thank all the people who have helped me achieve this. First of all, to my coach, Iván Pedroso, the Minister of Sports and the Venezuelan Athletics Federation, "he listed. EFE
