Ray Ewry won the first of his four consecutive gold medals in the standing long jump, with a mark of 3.30 metres (10-10). Ewry also won standing jump gold medals in Paris in the standing high jump and standing triple jump. He would finish his Olympic career with 10 gold medals, including the 1906 Intercalated Olympics in Athinai, and was never defeated at the Olympics. His Paris mark of 3.30 would not be bettered by another jumper at the Olympics until 1912. American Irv Baxter won the silver medal as he had done in the standing high jump and triple jump.
