Arnie Robinson, a native San Diegan, was one of the best long jumpers in U.S. track and field history. He won six National AAU titles and two Olympic medals, climaxing his career by winning the gold at the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal. His leap of 27 feet, 4-3/4 inches was the fifth-longest ever at the time. A Morse High alumnus who attended Mesa College and graduated from San Diego State University, Robinson won the NCAA long jump championship in 1970 and a bronze medal in the 1972 Olympics at Munich. Robinson was inducted into the Breitbard Hall of Fame in 1985.
