  • James White

    I'm reading the book "Andy Roddick Beat me with a Frying Pan" by Todd Gallagher. On p.77 it says that James White who plays for the San Antonio Spurs "qualified for the [US] Olympic Trials in the high jump by leaping 7'4" and the long jump with a distance of 25'7"".
    Is this true?

    Maybe they meant the ill-fated 2002 Trials... I am calling BS on this until concrete proof is provided.

      I'm with gm on this one, and I've done a bit of looking around. I don't think he ever high jumped that high, and his long jump mark was wind-aided, which meant that it was not a Trials qualifier.

        Those marks are pretty close. He jumped 7-2 at FL relays in his first meet ever for UF, then transferred to Cincinnatti(because he wasn't going to get playing time with FL basketball), and won Drake Relays lj.
