1976 Olympic Games Montreal - Women's High jump

Date Started: July 26, 1976

Overview by IAAF    1976_olympic_stadium.jpg
Ackermann had five of the six competitions at 1.92 or better for the season leading into Montreal. The surprise came in the qualifying round when defending champion Meyfarth could only clear 1.78, missing the 1.80 required, while Canada’s Debbie Brill was unable to clear any height. Ackermann, Simeoni, Blagoeva, Mračnová and Shlyakhto were perfect to 1.89 in the final, when Ackermann missed once, and the Belarussian failed. At 1.91 Simeoni flopped over, with Ackermann straddling clear, both first time, and only tough competitor Blagoeva could follow them with her second attempt. After all missed once at 1.93, Ackermann made the winning jump, demonstrating her impeccable technique. She then had one close miss at a world record 1.97.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
The top jumper since München had been East German Rosemarie Witschas-Ackermann. She was European Champion in 1974 and broke the world record twice in 1974 and again in May 1976. Eight jumpers were alive after 1.87 metres (6-1½), and there were still three left thru 1.89 (6-2¼), with Ackermann surprisingly missing her first jump at that height. But at 1.91 (6-3¼) she and Sara Simeoni (ITA) had first attempt successes, while Yordanka Blagoyeva (BUL), silver medalist in 1972, missed her first attempt before clearing. At 1.93 (6-4) Ackermann won the gold medal with a second-attempt clearance. Ackermann won as a straddle jumper, the last high jumper, male or female, to win Olympic gold using that technique.
