Jeff HENDERSON - U.S.A. - 2016 Olympic long jump champion.

Jeff's final jump in Rio won him the gold medal. Until then he was placed 4th.

 - with 8.22m after his 5th attempt. Luvo Manyonga had a no-jump on his final

attempt. Jarrion Lawson was the last to jump and might have won. His hand cut the sand

at 7.78m. But his feet landed over 8.40m from the take off board.
