Gulfport native Brittney Reese was the highest U.S. finisher in the women's long jump, but it wasn't enough to earn the former Ole Miss star a medal at the Beijing Olympics. Reese finished in fifth place with a jump of 6.76 meters (22 feet, 2.14 inches). Maurren Higa Maggi of Brazil won the gold medal.
