2021 Men’s Long Jump World Rankings

Miltiádis Tentóglou won the first Olympic long jump gold decided by a tiebreaker. (KIRBY LEE/IMAGE OF SPORT)

UNDERSCORING THE SO-CLOSE nature of the margin between Miltiádis Tentóglou and Juan Miguel Echevarría, the Olympic title was decided on the countback, the Greek getting the golden nod there…

THE CUBAN HAD WON their two previous meetings, both indoors in a year notably lacking in major head-to-head clashes… Tentóglou had the year’s only legal 28-footer (28-2¾/8.60) and the overall best sequence of marks, breaking 27 in all 6 of his outdoor meets…

THE U.S. CLAIMED 4 SPOTS, with JuVaughn Harrison racking up a 9-1 record over the other 3 to climb to No. 3 in the Rankings despite a Tokyo 5th and no other international competition.
