Biography

Geraldo de Oliveira was the first of a series of top Brazilian triple jumpers who appeared in the 1940s. He reached world class and was second on the 1947 world list. At the 1948 Olympics, de Oliveira placed fifth. He would compete again at the 1952 Olympics, in both the long jump and triple jump, but he never again was as good as in the mid-1940s. De Oliveira won the Brazilian title three times (1945-47) and bettered the Brazilian national record three times. He also won the South American long jump title once, and placed second in that event in the high jump. He also sprinted and hurdled, and dabbled in the decathlon.
