          Long Jump
          1. Yago Lamela 27'8
          2. Phillips 27'73/4
          3. Ivan Pedroso 27'5

          Triple Jump
          1. Olssen 58'7
          2. Edwards 58'1
          3. Davis 57'7

          Lamela will peak at the championships even though Phillips and Stringfellow have more talent.

                    Why has the quality of the long jump declined during the past ten years?

                    During the 1980s, a jump of well over 28 feet was consistently needed to win at major events.

                    As late as '91, you still needed that type of performance to win; who can forget the duel between Lewis and Powell in Tokyo that year, without a doubt one of the greatest jump competitions ever.

                    Now it seems that one can win the long jump with something between 27-6 and 27-10. I would be interested to hear people's views regarding this development.

                      I noticed Bergqvist just did 2.06 (6-9, the world leader) at one of the Euro meets.

                      And speaking of high-jumping alums from Texas universities, most of you probably know Erin Aldrich (Texas ex, 4-time NCAA champ) will be trying to make the 2004 Oly team, but in volleyball: http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent ... 9ee1a.html

                        It's quite interesting how you note the decline in 28 foot marks in the men's long jump since the retirement of both Mike Powell and Carl Lewis (I'm giving Mr. Powell his due as the World Record holder by mentioning him first). Other than Ivan Pedroso, the 28 foot marks to win major competitions have been few and far between.

                        One reason I believe there are a scarcity of 28 foot jumps is the fact that Mike, Carl, Larry Myricks, and a few others spoiled us with them because they cranked them out with such consistency. You don't find that same consistency now.

                        That's not to say that the current crop of jumpers are less talented. They are quite talented (just look at the very close competitions they're involved in); they just haven't been consistent in cranking out jumps going that far.

                        The fact that it no longer takes a 28 foot jump to win a major competition doesn't mean the event has declined. I think it's doing quite well and it'll be a matter of time before we see consistent 28 foot marks. After all, guys like Stringfellow, Pate, Phillips, and Davis are coming into their own (remember they only broke on the world scene @ 2000). It just takes time. Just like it took Carl, Larry, Mike, and company time before they were cranking 28 footers practically @ every competition.
