2x Bronze Medalist Olympic Games
A three-time world record holder, Stones set his first world record when he cleared 7' 6 1/2" in 1973 at Munich, Germany. That jump also made him the first "flopper" to set a world high jump record, five years after Dick Fosbury made that jumping style famous while winning the Mexico City Olympics. Stones raised the world record to 7'7" in 1976 and added another quarter inch to the record two months later. During this 16-year career, he won an incredible 19 national championships..

In 1999, he won US national championships by improving his own record to 6.02 metres, and his current North American record of 6.03 metres followed in 2000. His personal best indoor is 6.02 metres.
