Olympic Record 18.09 / Kenny Harrison USA / 27 July 1996

The top jumper of the past few years was American Christian Taylor, the 2012 London gold medalist, who was actually threatening the redoubtable world record set in 1995 by Britain’s Jonathan Edwards. His biggest challenger had been teammate Will Claye, who had been runner-up in London and was again favored for a medal.

In round one Taylor jumped 17.86, Claye 17.76, and China’s Dong Bin 17.58, which ruined any drama for the fans, as those marks took the medals. Only Taylor bettered Claye’s mark, his PR, when he jumped 17.77 in round four. Taylor’s 17.86 was longer than the PR of any other jumper, so they knew the gold medal was likely his with that mark. After the competition ended, Taylor went into the stands and proposed to his girlfriend, American hurdler Queen Harrison, who accepted. They later appeared on NBC television as the Olympic couple.
