In winning the 1968 Olympic title, Bob Beamon achieved what is generally recognized as the outstanding single performance in track & field history. Showing perfect technique in ideal conditions, he not only became the first man to break the 28-foot barrier but also the 29-foot mark. More precisely, he cleared 29-2½ (8.90) and finished more than two feet ahead of his nearest rival. Prior to this amazing feat Beamon had set a national high school triple jump record in 1965 and in 1967 he won the AAU indoor long jump and silver in long jump at the Pan American Games....
