Dendy was set to represent USA in the long jump until a recent achilles injury that caused him to withdraw from the Rio Olympics. Dendy was considered next in the lineage of elite University of Florida combination jumpers, following in the footsteps of Olympic medalists Christian Taylor and Will Claye. He did not disappoint, winning seven NCAA titles for the Gators. He is the defending long jump world indoor champion.
