1968 Olympic Games Ciudad de México, Mexico - Women's High Jump

 

 

Host City: Ciudad de México, Mexico Format: Top 12 and ties and all those clearing 1.74 metres advanced to the final.
Date Started: October 16, 1968  
Date Finished: October 17, 1968  
(Competitors: 24; Countries: 14; Finalists: 14)  
    Venue(s): University Olympic Stadium, Ciudad de México
Overview by IAAF    1968_olympic_stadium.jpg
All 14 qualifiers cleared 1.74 to make the final – a height reached by only four in Tokyo – and eight of these cleared 1.76 in the final. After 1.78, Valentová led from her 18 year-old teammate Rezková, but only the Czech and Okorokova could clear 1.80 first time. Kozyr was the only jumper to join them, as Schmidt, the pre-Olympic favourite fell by the wayside, finishing fifth. At 1.82 all failed twice, and then the short (1.69) Rezková cleared to rapturous applause. The enthusiastic and attractive Czech woman was one of the most popular winners in Mexico City.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
With Iolanda Balaş retired, the competition was wide-open. There were 14 competitors, but all jumped 1.74 (5-8½) in the qualifying round to advance to the final round. Eight jumpers were still in after 1.78 metres (5-10), but at 1.80 (5-10¾), only Miloslava Rezková (TCH), Antonina Okorokova (URS), and Valentina Kozyr (URS) were still alive. Režková jumped 1.82 metres (5-11½) on her third attempt to win the gold medal. Okorokova won the silver based on a first-attempt clearance at 1.80 (5-10¾), as Kozyr had needed three shots at that height. Režková was only 18-years-old and was an attractive, bubbly young lady who became one of the most popular champions in Ciudad de México.
