Overview by IAAF   sevilla1 
Pedroso won his third world outdoor title, but only after Spanish fans inside the packed stadium had been thrilled by Lamela, the man who gave Pedroso such a scare in the World Indoor Championships earlier in the year. He it was who led after the first round with 8.34 in reply to Pedroso’s 8.19 and Cankar’s 8.20. By the end of round 2 it could hardly have been much closer as Pedroso jumped 8.33 and Cankar 8.32 while Lamela fouled. But Pedroso is nothing if not a great competitor and in round 3 he went out to 8.56. Lamela fouled again but after losing second place to Cankar (8.36) in the fourth round he immediately responded with 8.40. For the first time in a global championship, four men went over 8.30 as Taurima – revealing some of the flair that would become more evident in Sydney 2000 – leapt an Australian record of 8.35 in the final round, 1cm behind Cankar. The highest-placed jumper from the USA, which had never previously been out of the medals in this event, was seventh. That was Texan Dilworth, who repeated his placing from Athens 1997.
 These are the official results of the Men's Long Jump event at the 1999 World Championships in Seville, Spain. There were a total number of 45 participating athletes, with the final held on Saturday 28 August 1999.

Men's Long Jump Final

26 year-old Ivan Pedroso (CUB) won his third consecutive title in this event jumping 8.56m. He has become the first man in the history of the Championships to obtain three long jump gold medals, leaving behind Carl Lewis ('83 and '87) and Mike Powell ('91 and '93). The Spaniard Yago Lamela took  the silver medal, thus repeating his position at the 1999 World Indoor Championships (behind Pedroso). He jumped 8.40, 16 centimetres less than his personal best earlier this year.
After the first round Lamela headed the event, with 8.34, while Pedroso jumped only 8.19 and was third behind Gregor Cankar (SLO) with 8.20. In the second round Lamela made a foul and Pedroso and Cankar jumped 8.33 and 8.32. The third round was the decisive one. The Cuban jumped 8.56 and his rivals could not come near to his performance. For a few minutes Cankar took the second position with 8.36, but Lamela replied immediately with 8.40, both performances in the fourth round. The only good jump of the two last rounds was Lamela's last attempt of 8.39, which was not enough to change the podium arrangement: Pedroso, Lamela, Cankar.

Men Long Jump - Qualification

Great surprises in this event with the non-qualification of well-known athletes in this discipline like the American Eric Walder, second in Athens, the Portuguese Carlos Calado, or Kareem Streete-Thompson (CAY). Defending champion and season leader, Ivan Pedroso (CUB), assured his qualification with the 8,16 he jumped in his first attempt, only one centimetre over the qualifying mark. Yago Lamela (ESP), who was second in the indoor World Championships in Maebashi, had problems to qualify, jumping two fauls in his first attempts and flying to 8,15 in the third one. The best mark of this qualification was for the Slovene Gregor Cankar, fourth in Maebashi, who jumped 8,23 in his third attempt. Only three men (Pedroso, Lamela and Cankar) flew over the qualifying 8,15. The last man to qualify jumped 7,90.
