On June 18, Fordham University hosted Olympic Gold (and silver, and bronze) winner Jackie Joyner-Kersee at the Lombardi Fieldhouse, when she dropped in to coach Wall Street Journal reporter Stu Woo in the art of the long jump in Fordham’s long jump pit.

Woo, who said he had competed in the event while in high school, got tips and techniques from the pro, who holds the International Association of Athletics Federation world record in heptathlon, and a long jump record of 7.49 meters, that is second on the long jump all time list. His report will be available on the Wall Street Journal website coinciding with the 2012 Olympics.
