|Ottey Competing in Athens for Slovenia|
1988- Heike Dreschler of East Germany set the World Indoor Record in the Long Jump with a leap of 24 feet, 2.5 inches or 7.37 meters. Dreschler also held the outdoor long jump record and tied the outdoor 200m world record as well. Dreschler was always suspected of doping but she never failed a drug test in her whole career. Her career spanned the same time period as Ottey's, rising to prominence in the early 1980s and wrapping it up with a Gold in the Long Jump in Sydney.
