Overview by IAAF   1972_olympic_stadium.jpg 
Yorgova (6.75) and Rosendahl (6.72) were the list leaders before the Games, with the German expected to win. Rosendahl jumped 6.62 in the qualifying round, but was led by Angelika Liebsch (GDR) who reached 6.69, though she managed just 6.23 for 13th later in the day. Rosendahl opened in the final with 6.78 (wind +0.5), while Yorgova reached only 6.43. The Bulgarian moved into second place with 6.62w in the third round, and moved to within 1cm of Rosendahl with her next jump of 6.77 into a slight headwind (-0.5) after briefly losing second to Šuranová’s 6.67. Rosendahl, the world record holder, was clearly the best on the day, with four jumps further than 6.70.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
The favorite entering München was Heide Rosendahl who was second on the year list to Bulgaria’s Diana Yorgova. But Rosendahl had set the world record of 6.84 (22-5¼) in 1970 in Torino, Italy. Rosendahl opened with 6.78 (22-3) which was her best mark and won her the gold medal. Yorgova came close with 6.77 (22-2½) in round four for the silver.
