High jump is a great Olympic Athletic sport were the athlete has to jump up to a certain height by jumping. It is a very interesting sport that started in ancient Greece and still goes on until today!
The record at high jump that was made in 1993 by Javier Sotomayor was 2.45m! :O
A bit more info
High Jump need A LOT of skill and power to do it due to the fact that you need to jump a certain height and especially for professionals that jump over their own height most of the time.
You also need to be:
- tall (only to be easier to jump a height in comparison with your own height).
- strong on your legs
My personal opinion
My personal opinion on High Jump is that it is an interesting sport to watch. I tried it ones at my track practice and let me say that it isn’t at all easy as it looks.
