Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The men's long jump was one of four jumping events on the Athletics at the 1896 Summer Olympics programme. There were nine contestants in the long jump, held on 7 April. The American jumpers proved themselves dominant in taking the top three spots. Clark's first two jumps were fouls, but his third was by far the best of the field. At the 1896 Summer Olympics, twelve athletics events were contested. All of the events except the marathon were held in the Panathinaiko Stadium, which was also the finish for the marathon.
