Quite a day. Beat Arizona and jump WAAAAYYY out there.

Yes, Walder is tied with Larry Myricks and Dwight Phillips for 5th. Mike Powell leads the list followed by Bob Beamon’s famous jump at México City Olympics, Carl Lewis and Robert Emmiyan and then the trio of Walder, Myricks and Phillips.

Proud to note that other than Emmiyan, all are Americans.
