Overview by IAAF   Helsinki Olympic Stadium 
Lewis, winner of the 100m gold, was required to contest two more titles two days later. Minutes after anchoring the United States to victory in their sprint relay heat, he made a delayed start to the long jump final. Hitting the board well he soared out to 8.55, comfortably further than the 8.29 opener of Grimes. Lewis turned to the stand and raised his arms high in salute to the crowd. After missing the second round, Lewis produced 8.42 before passing the rest of his series to concentrate on the relay final where he anchored his team to a new world record time. Grimes compiled an excellent series despite never threatening Lewis. A close battle for the bronze was won by Conley – fourth in the triple jump – in the fifth round. For the second time in Helsinki, Lewis had led a United States sweep of the medals. There was premature excitement after Lewis’s first jump when one TV commentator saw the bib number of Lewis – 892 – flash onto the screen and announced this as a new world record
 These are the official results of the Men's Long Jump event at the 1983 IAAF World Championships in Helsinki, Finland. There were a total of 34 participating athletes, with two qualifying groups and the final held on 10 August 1983.
