      Although it was some years after I competed, I was aware of Tuariki's somersault exploits but was never tempted to try it. In recent years, I became well acquainted with a university track coach, now retired, a versatile athlete who was a national class long jump contemporary of Tuariki. He said he experimented with the somersault and was quickly converted from a 26-footer to a 24-footer.
