Biography

After placing third at the 1972 Games, Dwight Stones was considered a certainty for the 1976 Olympic title, but his form went to pieces in the rainy conditions in Montréal and he again had to settle for a bronze medal. Stones set three world records, his final one of 7-7¼ (2.32) coming only four days after the 1976 Olympic final. He won six AAU outdoor and three indoor titles, and while at Long Beach State he was the NCAA indoor and outdoor champion in 1976. Stones missed the 1979 season after being suspended for receiving money in the Superstars competition, but he then made a comeback, ending in a 4th place for him at the 1984 Olympics. Stones was known as one of the more outspoken personalities in track and he later put that personality to good use as a television commentator for track & field meets.

Personal Best: HJ – 2.34 (1984).
