Marquise Goodwin gave it a good effort, but ultimately failed to qualify for the finals in the long jump at the U.S. Olympic Trials, finishing 19th out of 24 participants.
The Chicago Bears wide receiver best leap came in at 24’10,” which was shorter than when he jumped more than 27 feet to win the Olympic Trials prior to the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. He finished 10th at those Games.
Goodwin attempted to qualify for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, but fell short of qualifying.
As far as his football career goes, Goodwin signed with Chicago in April and participated in its offseason program after missing the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
The last time the 30-year-old appeared in a NFL game was in 2019 with the 49ers, tallying 12 catches over nine games.
