The top three qualified for the final, with the qualifying jumps carried forward. In the final Tsiklitiras jumped 3.30 and 3.24 and Ben Adams also got close to his earlier jump with 3.18 and 3.24.

Summary by Sports-reference.com      
The defending champion was America’s Ray Ewry, who had won the Olympic title in this event in 1900, 1904, 1906, and 1908. In 1904 at St. Louis he had set the then still-standing world and Olympic record of 3.47 (11-4 7/8). But Ewry had retired in 1911 and in his absence, Greece’s Kostas Tsiklitiras won the gold medal, ahead of America’s Adams’ brothers, Platt and Ben. The standing jumps were never again contested at the Olympics.
