The 2023 NCAA outdoor track and field championships began on Wednesday and Rutgers’ Sincere Robinson competed in the long jump. He finished in 9th place out of 24 competitors.

Robinson earned Second Team All-American status with a jump of 7.83m (25’ 8.25”). He missed First Team honors by just one place in the standings. It was a strong performance for the sophomore in his first appearance at the outdoor championships.

Wednesday’s result capped what was a great second year of his collegiate career for Robinson. It began by winning the Big Ten Indoor title this past winter. He then earned Second Team All-American honors at the NCAA indoor championships for the second time in his career with a 10th place finish. He then set the program record in the outdoor long jump in April. Robinson produced a jump of 7.93m (26′ 0.25″) at the Rutgers relays to set the new all-time mark.

Last month, Robinson finished second at the Big Ten Outdoor Championships to win a silver medal. He then placed ninth at NCAA Regionals with a jump of 7.55m (24′ 9.25″) to earn his first trip to the NCAA Outdoor Championships.

On Thursday, Rutgers pole vaulter Chloe Timberg will compete at nationals. Timberg will be making her second appearance at the NCAA Outdoor Championships after earning a trip as a true freshman last year. She made Second Team All-American at the 2022 nationals but has a chance to challenge for a national title this year. The two-time Big Ten Outdoor champion who is also the school and conference record holder competes on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. streaming live on ESPN+.
