      Good idea. Also, bring back right-footed and left-footed jump combinations.

        More like this, lapsus - necessary philosophical concoction to justify many of the existing records - just keep reinventing the athlete, and rationalizing the mutations:

          In elementary school, the standing "broad" jump and standing "hop, step and jump" were events in which we competed. I've always suspected my SBJ of 8 ft 4 in in 5th grade (yes, I remember it exactly) was probably my all-events, all-time PB. :wink:

            SBJ Distances

            A standing broad jump of 8'4" in fifth grade is quite impressive. My father took a triangular meet in Boston in the mid-to-late 1950's w/ an 8'6".
