Long jumper Robert Beamon was born on August 29, 1946, in Jamaica, New York. After graduating from high school, Beamon attended North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. He later transferred to the University of Texas-El Paso, where he could pursue his passion for track and field. In 1968, Beamon qualified to compete at the Olympics in Mexico City. Four months prior, he was suspended from the University of Texas-El Paso track team for refusing to compete against Brigham Young University because of its racist policies. On October 18, 1968, Beamon made Olympic history when he broke the world record for the long jump. Beamon jumped 29 feet, 4 inches, beating the previous record by nearly two feet and becoming the first man to jump more than 28 feet. He has since been inducted into the National Track and Field Hall of Fame and the Olympic Hall of Fame
