      Just need to provide proper motivation:Perhaps forcing competitors to jump over a pit of hungry alligators would yield the first nine-meter jump.

        The first 9-meter jump will come after we adopt a wide, no-foul takeoff board and measure from the takeoff point
        instead of the foul line. New event, new rules.

          Under those rules, we've already seen the first nine-meter jump. Here's a screenshot from Powell's WR. Note the scale at the bottom of the image. Looks like a five-centimeter gap to me.
