Overview by IAAF  
Wang (18) led the competition after the first round with 8.14, which he improved to 8.18 in the second stanza. Rutherford quickly settled matters with a jump of 8.29, followed two rounds later with an 8.41 featuring a plasticine gap of only 1.5cm. The major change in the last two rounds came with Lapierre’s medal-winning efforts of 8.20 and then 8.24. Henderson – who qualified with 8.36 – had a miserable day, managing one valid jump of 7.95. His compatriots fared much worse. Hartfield fouled out in the final while Dendy went out in qualifying. For Rutherford it gave him a full house of championships – World, Olympic, Commonwealth and European – the fifth to complete such a collection only available to Britons and Cypriots.
