Overview by IAAF    1980_olympic_stadium.jpg
Alfeyeva again led the qualifying with 6.78, as the worst of the qualifiers reached 6.44. Skachko led the first round with an Olympic record 6.96, and Wujak and Kolpakova also beat the old Olympic record with 6.88 and 6.84. Skachko consolidated her first round effort with the first 7m jump in Olympic history – 7.01 – and only Włodarczyk (6.88) and Kolpakova (6.87) were able to improve before the last round. Włodarczyk improved again to 6.95 with her last jump to tighten her grasp on the silver medal, but two jumps later that hold began to slide, as the 20 year-old Kolpakova – a native of Frunze, the Kirghiz capital – gave it everything and boomed out to 7.06 to become the second furthest jumper ever. That wasn’t quite the end, as Wujak stretched out to a GDR record of 7.04. No-one had ever jumped 7m and lost before, and here Skachko moved to number four on the all-time list yet finished only third. Former world record holder Siegl rounded out the competition with her best of the day, 6.87, as four of the top five reached their best in the last round of this great competition.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
In 1978, Soviet Lithuanian Vilma Bardauskienė had become the first woman to surpass seven metres with a world record of 7.07 (23-2½), and she bettered that mark ten days later with 7.09 (23-3¼). But she was injured and did not compete in Moskva. Also missing were the American jumpers, but they probably would not have affected the final outcome. The competition in Moskva went back and forth and was not settled until the final round. Tatyana Skachko (URS) led in round three with 7.01 (23-0), and would eventually win bronze. In round six, Soviet Tatyana Kolpakova jumped 7.06 (23-2), threatening the world record, to take the lead. But East Germany's Brigitte Wujak threatened that with 7.04 (23-1¼) on her final jump, winning the silver medal.
