Two-time defending champion Adhemar da Silva was back but was no longer the leading jumper. He qualified for the final, but would place only 14th. Józef Szmidt had won the 1958 European Championships and a few weeks before the Olympics, he won the Polish Championships with a world record of 17.03 (55-10½), the first jump past the 17-metre barrier. Szmidt won the gold medal in round one, jumping 16.78 (55-0¾), which nobody could better, except him. He did so in round three with 16.81 (55-2). Vitold Kreyer won bronze for the second consecutive Olympics.
