In the board jump finals, Luz Long broke his own past record with a peak performance. In doing so, Long pushed Jesse for another peak performance. Owen went on to set the Olympic record of 26 feet 5-5/16 inches. The moment Jesse landed from his final lap, Luz was standing at his side, congratulating him. While Jesse won the gold medal, Luz won the silver.
