Overview by IAAF    2000_olympic_stadium.jpg
The qualifying was led by Britons Achike (17.30) and Idowu (17.12) and local favourite Andrew Murphy (17.12). Event favourite Jonathan Edwards jumped 17.08, while injured World Champion Charles- Michael Friedek surprisingly made the final with 16.93. Achike supported his qualifying jump by leading after round 1 of the final with 17.29. Edwards then took the lead with 17.37, to be overtaken two jumps later by Kapustin’s 17.46. Edwards then responded with 17.71. With the order switched after round 3 so that the leader jumped last, Edwards could then watch to see if his position was threatened. No-one got close, though Garcia moved from fifth to second with his final round 17.47. The Cuban tendency to jump well in round 6 was echoed by Quesada who placed 4th with his 17.37. Edwards had last been a global champion five years earlier, but had been the number one jumper in the world for four of the five seasons prior to Sydney.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
The favorite was again world record holder Jonathan Edwards, with Cuban Yoelbi Quesada considered a threat. The 1999 World Champion, Charles Friedek, was injured but surprisingly made the final, although he did not get a fair mark. Qualifying was led by 1998 Commonwealth Games champion Larry Achike (GBR). He also led the final after round one with 17.29 (56-8¾). Edwards briefly took the lead in round two with 17.37 (57-0), but Russia's Denis Kapustin surpassed him later in the round with 17.46 (57-3½). But Edwards moved ahead for good in round three with the gold medal winning leap of 17.71 (58-1¼). In the final round, Cuba's Yoel García took the silver medal from Kapustin with 17.47 (57-3¾).
