      F.W. Parrington (GB) holds the human plunging distance record at 86-8, set in 1933.

      this was not an uncommon event at Collegiate swim meets back when diving was still referred to as plunging.

      I have.no idea what the rules were for the “plunge for distance.”

        And now I understand the rules The plunge was taken from the lip of the pool and the length includes the underwater unpropelled glide.

        So, not at all what we’re Talking about.

        “Never mind!”

          Plunge for distance was an Olympic event in 1904, won by Billy Dickey. Here are the 1904 rules and entry list:

            I'd be more impressed BAMBAM if the dog had done a somersault

              Talent and courage on that level is found rarely, .. even in canines !

                Tuariki - dogs are too smart to try a somersault long jump.

                  I better not comment on a dog that not only somersaults but does twisting backflips when deemed necessary, as it might get me banned.

                  On another matter I might need to fly over and check in to see you as my knees and hips are increasingly telling me that they don't like me doing some things like C&J, bunny hops, or the short jump.

                    Would love to have you come over and spend some time with me. We could get together with Atticus halfway between Hilton Head and Jacksonville. But remember, I'm a shoulder / elbow specialist.

                      If you can do a right shoulder implant/extension that will help me get out past 13m in the shot, you're on.

                        True story.
                        I chanced on a HS LJ competition years ago where the volunteer Mom in charge actually was measuring the farthest mark made in the pit.
                        This was not the same competition where they were measuring from the estimated point of takeoff.
                        Or ignoring "teensy" fouls, which was/is all too common among amateur judges and is subject to home cooking.
