Intro

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!

World Record

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).
  • pliable
  • 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.
