Long Jump, Men

Date28 – 29 July 1976
StatusOlympic
LocationStade olympique, Parc olympique, Montréal, Québec
Participants33 from 25 countries

The top two Americans from 1972, Randy Williams and Clarence )Arni) Robinson, were back and with teammate Larry Myricks also highly considered, an American sweep seemed possible. But warming up for the final, Myricks broke a bone in his foot and could not compete. In the opening round, Robinson jumped his lifetime PR of 8.35 (27-4¾) and won the gold medal with that effort. He also could have won his second round jump of 8.26 (27-1¼), or his fifth round jump of 8.16 (26-9¼). Williams opened with 8.11 (26-7¼), which was good enough for the silver medal. The GDR’s Frank Wartenberg was the surprise bronze medalist.
