Bob Beamon Long Jump Record The most mind-boggling one-shot achievement in sports history (in my humble opinion) occurred at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics. American Bob Beamon obliterated the world record for the long jump by nearly two feet! To put this in perspective, until Beamon's fateful leap, the world record in the long jump had only advanced eight inches in the previous 32 years. Beamon's record leap of 8.90 metres stood until 1991. Beamon still holds the Olympic record.

I always loved Beamon's reaction when the measurement was announced: He dropped to the ground and cried.

That's why I love sports: You never know when something truly special is going to happen. When it does, it touches your emotions.
