    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.

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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!”

    Are record breakers subject to doping control?

    You guys keep trying to downplay this record. This is man's best friend. This is un-American. Isn't this an indictment of our American way of life? I don't know about you but I won't stand by and listen to everyone badmouthing man's best friend and the United States of America.
