The uncovered success of Alperen in high jump

15 3 0

The other day I received a call from Aşkın Tuna.

“Fatih this is an unbelievable record. This is the first time I am calling you about a broken record. Alperen registered 2.30 meters in the men’s high jump. This is a score on a global level.”

I checked the newspapers the next day.

Transfers of football players were on the front page of newspapers.

No news about Alperen Acet on the front pages. I am criticizing myself as well.

Why don’t we see these successes?

Aşkın Tuna is one of the legendary names of Turkish athletics.

He is also an older member of our family. He registered an incredible record in 1967.

With a jump of 16.01, he made it to the international lists with the triple jump.
