    No, this NCAA champion did not come from Finland. He did come from a fairly famous island, known for some pretty good track & field stars.

      A little more information to help you name this 1981 NCAA triple jump champion. He competed in two consecutive Olympic Games at the same event (only once in the triple jump), but did not make the Olympic final in either of those two Olympics.

        A final clue to aid you with the 1981 NCAA triple jump champion. This jumper shares the same first name with a very famous American distance runner who is no longer alive. The famous American distance runner ran in only one Olympic Games and did not win an Olympic medal. The mystery jumper also shares the same last name with a pretty famous American animator/cartoonist. You might remember "Tom & Jerry", "The Flintstones", "The Jetsons", and "Yogi Bear". This famous American animator/cartoonist worked with another famous animator/cartoonist. The other famous animator/cartoonist has the same initials as the athlete who was the first person to run an indoor mile under four minutes (1962).

            Steve Hanna won the 1981 NCAA triple jump in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Very good, Trickstat. I think he jumped about 55' 11" to win it. You may remember that he was from the Bahamas and competed in the long jump at the 1984 and 1988 Olympic Games. He also competed in the triple jump in Los Angeles (1984). He did make the final in any of those three events.

            Thank you, Trickstat.
