These are the official results of the Men's Long Jump event at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, California. There were a total number of 31 participating athletes, with two qualifying groups, and the final held on August 6, 1984.

While criticized in the media, Carl Lewis had the event won with his first and only attempt. The rest was just a formality as he relaxed and watched the best in the world take their best shots. But none could come within a foot of Lewis and he could focus on the 200 meters final later that afternoon.
