Ray Ewry defended his title in this event without being pressed. He would win this again in 1906 and 1908, as he would with the standing high jump, making him the first Olympian in track & field to win the same event at four consecutive Olympics. He has been followed only by Al Oerter (discus throw - 1956-68) and Carl Lewis (long jump (1984-96).
