1992 Olympic Games Barcelona - Men's Triple jump

 

 

Host City: Barcelona, Spain Format: Top 12 and ties and all those reaching 17.00 metres advanced to the final.
Date Started: August 1, 1992
Date Finished: August 3, 1992
(Competitors: 47; Countries: 32; Finalists: 12)
Venue(s): Montjuïc Olympic Stadium, Barcelona
Overview by IAAF  1992_olympic_stadium.jpg
Eight of the 12 finalists made the qualifying distance of 17.00, with 16.91 the cut-off, as reigning champion Markov (16.46), and ’92 World Cup winner Jonathan Edwards (15.76) were among the 33 who did not qualify. Voloshin, the European Champion and slight favourite led the first round with 17.32. In second place was Quesada, who celebrated his 19th birthday a day early with 17.15, the first of four jumps by him beyond 17m. Voloshin was overtaken by Conley in the second round. Conley had missed the Seoul Games after a controversial judging decision in the US Trials, and Barcelona was his opportunity for absolution. His jump here was 17.63, a new Olympic record, which would be threatened only by Simpkins in the last round. Frank Rutherford also moved into a medal position in round 2 with 17.36; the Bahamian repeated the 17.36 in the next round, heading off Voloshin’s second 17.32 in the fifth round. In the final round Conley produced his usual sixth round surge, this time a lifetime best of 18.17 – 20cm beyond the world record, aided by a barely illegal wind of 2.1, the only jump of the competition to be windy.
Summary by Sports-reference.com
Mike Conley had been favored in 1984 but was upset by Al Joyner, winning a silver medal. In 1988 he did not make the American Olympic team. He was again favored in 1992 but Leonid Voloshin, the 1990 European Champion and 1991 World runner-up, was a big challenger. Voloshin opened with 17.32 (56-10) in round one to lead the final. Conley then settled matters in round two with 17.63 (57-10¼) which was good enough for the gold medal. But he solidified his title in the final round, jumping 18.17 (59-7½), which would have been a world record but for an aiding wind of +2.1 m/s, narrowly over the limit. Frank Rutherford of the Bahamas took second place in round two with 17.36 (56-11½) and duplicated that in round three. But he was pushed back to the bronze medal in the final round when American Charlie Simpkins jumped 17.60. Voloshin finished out of the medal in fourth.
