2012 U.S. Olympic Track & Field Trials: Texas WR Marquise Goodwin Wins Long Jump Qualifier

The three U.S. representatives in the long jump competition in London have been set at the Olympic Trials Sunday in Eugene, Ore. College football fans may recognize the player who won the event -- it's Texas wide receiver Marquise Goodwin, the player who gave us this piece of goodness (courtesy of @BubbaProg):

Each finalist got six attempts, and Goodwin was leading after his third, a jump of 27 feet, zero inches. He bettered that distance -- though he didn't need to (hook 'em!) -- in his final try, with a 27-foot, four-inch jump. William Claye qualified second with a jump of 27 feet even, and George Kitchens, Jr. finished third with a 26-foot, 11-and-three-quarters-inch jump.

The London Olympics will take place from July 27 to Aug. 12.
