Olympic Record 3.47 / Ray Ewry USA / 29 August 1904

Ray Ewry won the standing long jump easily, with Martin Sheridan again placing 2nd, edging out Lawson Robertson of the United States, who took the bronze medal. Unfortunately for Sheridan, he injured his right leg while practicing for the standing long jump, which would cause him to withdraw from the pentathlon. Finishing 13th in the standing long jump was Austria’s Theodor Scheidl. Scheidl competed in the pentathlon as well, and the extent of Sheridan’s injury can be seen by the finish of the only section he completed, the standing long jump. Robertson won that section of the pentathlon, with Scheidl defeating Sheridan for 2nd place points, although Sheridan had bested him by 32 centimetres in the open event.
