  • Who is this high jumper?

    He was quite significant and he is an American.

    Be patient, because for some reason it takes a minute or so to load this page.

          Hmmm...Walker jumped 2.09 and I don't think that bar approaches that. I'm guessing it's around 2m so I'll go with George Horine (I actually measured his body length vs. upright with a pencil on my screen...christ I need to get a life!)

              No, Horine is too early and he was a Western Roller (invented it). It is not Walker either but closer. I agree with Mark that the bar looks to be around 2m.

                    I suspect it's the guy who was the second (after ???) ever to jump 7-feet in the NCAA Championships.

                          It's not Avant, that's for sure. As someone said, whoever it is is doing the "dive straddle".

                          I have no idea, so just to throw out a new name I will say Ernie Shelton.

                            It is George Horine.
