Women Long Jump History

The clash of the two co-world record holders – Drechsler (née Daute) and Joyner-Kersee – was spoiled by an injury to Drechsler’s left knee which prevented her from taking her last two jumps.
Even so, the GDR athlete would have needed to be at her best to have defeated the American, who leapt 7.36 in the third round. JoynerKersee, who won the heptathlon three days earlier, was initially given a red flag for her winning jump. This decision was reversed on closer inspection of the plasticine.
Drechsler, about to lose for the first time since 1985, was pushed back into third place when Belevskaya leapt 7.14 in the fourth round.
World Record: Heike Daute-Drechsler (GDR) 7.45m 21.06.86 Tallin, Soviet Union and 03.07.86 Dresden, East Germany.
World Record: Jackie Joyner-Kersee (USA) 7.45m (+0.6) 13.08.87 Dresden, East Germany.
Championship Record: Heike Daute-Drechsler (GDR) 7.27m W 14.08.83 Helsinki, Finland.
