    I apologize if this shows up twice --- minor glitch here...
    But, is there some kind of world record, (unofficial), for the Standing Vertical?
    I also heard that DT could go up 48", and I seem to remember that a Cuban volleyball player was around 54". Does anybody know?

        Doubt it. Sure doesn't look that high.

          Marlow, while the dunks performed are doable by a handful (or more, I really don't know) of NBA players, I really doubt that many of them can get their nose to the height of a rim, let alone those who are 6'4.

          I too would like to see the video of a front-flip 2.12m. I consider it within the capability of Justin Darlington, but I'd need to see a video to believe it. The video I posted that was reposted certainly isn't 2.10 and 2.19.

          Most of the internet "vertical" claims are inaccurate. There certainly isn't a "World Record" for it. Leonel Marshall could be the Cuban VB player you think of.
          The claims of Khadour Ziani's vertical are hilariously inflated. I've never seen any picture or video suggesting his vertical is anywhere close to the numbers floating around. My guess is that a weightlifter has/had the highest vertical ever. No ideal about who it might be, but think of the explosive power someone like Dimas must have been able to generate when he wasn't pulling 200kg off the floor .

          Michael Wilson dunked on a 12" rim from an alley-oop.
          There is a video of Robertas Javtokas dunking on what is supposed to be a 12 foot rim.
          I'm skeptical of Dwight Howard's "12 foot" dunk as I never saw anything suggesting it was measured. It was certainly high though.

            Right! If the guy is 6'4" that bar is about 2m.

                There is an article about him here:

                At only his second meet, after minimal training, he jumped 2.10...
