Overview by IAAF  1980_olympic_stadium.jpg
With no Americans the competition was severely devalued, although Larry Myricks and Carl Lewis would have had to excel themselves to be up with the winner. Paschek and Dombrowski led the qualifiers with 8.17, while injuries prevented Cuba’s David Giralt and Yugoslav European record holder Nenad Stekić from qualifying. The excellent Ukrainian jumper Podluzhniy opened the competition with 8.07, but was quickly overtaken by Szalma (8.13) and Dombrowski (8.15). Podluzhniy improved to 8.08, but soon found himself in fifth, as Corgos (8.09) and Paschek (8.21) passed him on successive jumps. Dombrowski then boomed out to 8.32 to win the gold medal. The only jump of quality in round 3 came from baby-faced Belskiy, who edged into fourth with 8.10. Podluzhniy opened the second half of the final with his bronze medal winning jump – 8.18. Dombrowski (1.87/87Kg) produced another quality jump in the fourth round (8.21). He pounded down the runway in the penultimate round and powered off the take-off board perfectly into his simple hang style, to land 8.54 away from the board. It was the second furthest jump ever, and the best at low altitude. He supported it with another fine jump – 8.34 – on his final attempt. Dombrowski, who had triple jumped 16.61 at the age of 17, and high jumped 2.10, was one of the greatest ever European jumping talents. On a less savoury note it was found many years later that he had, under pressure, worked as an informer for the GDR secret police, helping ensure continued political correctness from that country’s athletes.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
Larry Myricks had won the 1979 World Cup with 8.52 (27-11½), the second longest jump ever, defeating East Germany's Lutz Dombrowski in the process. But the American boycott meant Dombrowski did not have to face Myricks. He also did not face a young American long jumper named Carl Lewis, who also made the default US Olympic team. In their absence, Dombrowski was the heavy favorite, especially as the next best European jumper, Nenad Stekić (YUG), was injured and could not compete either. In their absence, Dombrowski won easily. His series was quite impressive, and would have made things very difficult for Myricks or Lewis. His winning mark was 8.54 (28-0¼) – the second legal mark over 28 feet, but he also jumped 8.34 (27-4½), 8.32 (27-3¾), 8.21 (26-11¼), and 8.15 (26-9), with one foul. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, it was revealed that Dombrowski was an informant for the Stasi, the East German secret police.
