Olympic Record 7.48 / Frank Irons USA / 22 July 1908

Frank Irons (USA) was the defending champion and Olympic record holder and in 1912 he won the central U.S. Olympic Trial. He was present at Stockholm and was a slight favorite, having won the AAU Championship in 1909 and 1910. But he did not jump well, placing 5th in Group One of the qualifying, failing to advance to the final, and finishing 9th overall.

In his first jump in qualifying, America’s Albert Gutterson set a new Olympic record with 7.60, which easily qualified him for the final and led the qualifiers. He was joined there by Canada’s Cal Bricker and Sweden’s Georg Åberg. In the final, neither Bricker nor Åberg threatened Gutterson, who won the gold medal although he did not approach his qualifying mark with his final jumps. Bricker did not improve his qualifying mark of 7.21 and placed second. Åberg did improve to 7.18 in the final, but still finished third.
