If you are in a nit-picking mood, Carl Lewis was a runner. He won an Olympic medal 12 years after the first medal. It just so happens it was in a jumping event. Jumping events (outside of the standing jumps which are not Olympic events) involve running.

Ulrike Meyfarth won HJ gold in 1972 and 1984. Not sure if that still makes her the youngest and the oldest to win gold in that event.

The long jump is a field event. Field events don't count in this thread. Sorry.[/quote]

Boy are you wrong. Very wrong. It's the running that is the predominate factor in take-off velocity and trajectory in the jumps.
