Best Answer

Both the standing jump (straight vertical) and standing long jump have not been Olympic events since 1912, when they were discontinued. Ray Ewry held all the standing jump records, with his standing long jump record of 3.47 meters being most impressive until the sport was discontinued at the world level in 1938. There are rumours of 3.6 having been accomplished since, but since it is no longer a world class sport, they are difficult to verify.
