Summary

Russia's Tatyana Lebedeva was favored both in this event and the long jump. In the qualifying, Khrysopigi Devetzi pleased the home crowd with 15.32 (50-3¼), which would have won the gold medal but qualifying marks do not carry over to the final. In the final, Cameroon's Françoise Mbango leaped 15.30 (50-2½) in the second round and took a lead she would not relinguish. Lebedeva could not get over 50 feet, and only moved into the medals in the fifth round. Devetzi jumped 15.14 (49-8¼) in round two and 15.25 (50-0½) in round five, both of which cemented the silver medal. This was Cameroon's first Olympic medal in athletics, and only their second ever, after the 2000 men's football team gold.
