LocationStade Olympique de Colombes, Colombes
Participants34 from 21 countries

The day before this event started, the world record in the long jump was broken by Bob LeGendre, while he was competing in the pentathlon. He was not entered in the long jump. The favorite was America’s DeHart Hubbard, having won the AAU in 1922-24 and the 1924 US Olympic Trials, but he stood only third after qualifying. Norway’s Sverre Hansen led the qualifying with 7.26 (23-10), with Edward “Ned” Gourdin, 1921 AAU Champion, in second place. But in the final rounds, Gourdin improved first to 7.275 (23-10½) and then Hubbard won with his 7.445 (24-5¼) jump. In 1925, Hubbard broke the world record with 7.89 (25-10¾). The sixth-place finisher, Christopher Mackintosh was an accomplished all-round sportsman. He won the Public Schools lawn tennis doubles in 1921, represented Oxford University at athletics, rugby football, and skiing, played rugby for Scotland on the wing in 1924 and was a member of the British crew that won the 4-man bobsleigh at the 1937 World Championships. Two of his daughters, Sheena (1948/52) and Vora (1952), were Olympic skiers.
