    My TJers had to watch him on every rainy day we had, after we hit the weight room.
    Other video models

    High Hurdles - Skeets / Sally Pearson
    300H - Edwin Moses
    HJ - D W I G H T for his arm-swing
    PV -was Bubka, but while his technique was perfect (for him), his straight-leg swing is very very hard to do, so switched to Hartwig's tuck, which is just as effective and much easier to do.
    LJ - It was Heike Dreschler for the hang
    TJ - JE!
    In the HJ it has to be Patrik Sjoberg, Nobody comes close to his bar clearance. For the women it's Kostadinova.

      Not Stefan Holm?
      Kosta is great on top of the bar, but her lead arm is useless. No drive. Obviously didn't need it!

        No, we are miles apart but let's agree on Janis Lusis having the finest Jav technique.

          OK,
          (the Jav has always been a mystery to me. I tried it but baseball prevented me from mastering the action. I understand the theory and can mimic the technique, but when I try to throw far, it reverts back to the baseball model, which can hurt the elbow)

            Here's a 17yo German boy jumping 7,72 (25-4) with technique that I would find acceptable in an athlete of mine . . .

              Here's Starc over 2.28 last week. Love the approach, still not a fan of the premature arm-lift. It seems to be solely psychological (well, at least I've already got my arm over the bar).

                    As much as I am a Heike fan - and you all know how much that is - my overall favourite LJ technique has to be Robert Emmiyan's, his hang was absolutely breathtaking.

                      I was always kind of an Emmyan fan, for both his technique and the fact we were the same size. Never mind that he could jump a meter further than I.
                      I was lucky to work the LJ at Goodwill Games in Seattle, completing my bucket list of working every 29 footer.

                          However, in order to do that one has to have cognizance of time and space during the somersault - something I never had which is pretty obvious when one sees my landing.

                          As for danger? I don't think so; certainly not for someone who has the gymnastic time and space awareness. And especially if I could do it. And believe it or not this is from someone who has never done a somersault into a swimming pool.

                            Having just watched the video about your exploits, I was curious how long it took before you were willing to do this in competition? It seems like it would have been pretty terrifying to take the first few jumps.

                              Any sport or elite athlete performance in super slow motion looks smooth. My money is on JE. I like this because I like Finn language!

                                As a coach, I've watched that maybe 100 times, showing TJers how easy and simple the TJ is - not even kidding. There's nothing in that jump that ever made me or my athletes say, "wow that is raw athleticism; how did he do that?" He made it look that easy, testament to just how remarkable he was.
