Schmidt was the favourite contender for the triple jump and the 1960 Rome games, and had no difficulty in taking over the title from the Brazilian Ferreira Da Silva who had won the last two.Four years later in Tokyo the Polish triple jump champion repeated the feat despite a painful knee following a surgical operation: he had to have an injection before jumping.He was back again at the Mexico games where he only reached the final. Although his jumps were as good as his first two winning Olympic jumps he only finished 7th this time. In four years the sport had made progressed enormously.
