1 Giovanni Evangelisti of Italy originally won the bronze in the long jump with a jump of 8.37 m, but it was later determined that Italian field officials had entered a fake result for a jump of 7.85m. [1]. The 8.37 number was pre-arranged and falsely entered into the books. Evangelisti did not know about the scam at the time. Sandro Donati helped reveal the fraud and was fired from his job. [1]
