Olympic Record 7.06 (0.4 m/s) / Tatyana Kolpakova URS / 31 July 1980

The Eastern Europe boycott affected the competition as missing was Heike Daute, the 1983 World Champion, who would have been favored. But she might not have won. Romania’s Anişoara Stanciu-Cuşmir had set four world records in the long jump in 1982-83, and placed second to Daute at the 1983 Worlds. In the absence of the East Germans and Soviets she was favored and came through. She and Britain’s Sue Hearnshaw were tied after round one with 6.80 (22-3¾). Cusmir-Stanciu’s winning mark came in round four with 6.96 (22-10), while her teammate Vali Ionescu, also a world record setter in 1982, moved into the silver medal position in round five with 6.81 (22-4¼), while Hearnshaw earned the bronze.
