Clearance at 2.32m or 7 feet 7.5 inches. About curve running for you elite guys.
Accelerating out of the back correctly and initiating the curve correctly are incredibly important when CLEARING high bars. There is a bit of research on curve initiation and bar clearance. ———————
The first couple of steps that occur in the run up should be very similar to the first 5 steps in any other jumping event. The athlete should display a slight lean, dropping the head and chest towards the thigh. This position ensures that the athlete is able to enter the curve with a good speed. Commonly, I will cue athletes to “accelerate through the curve”. This is because there is an additional force the athlete is trying to manage; centripetal force. The athlete’s foot is applying an outward force (ground reaction inward) as well as backwards (ground reaction forwards). This means the athlete will likely feel more pressure while running the curve, as they are continuing to “accelerate” as they change direction each step. The velocity through the curve may be the same as the entrance velocity, but inside of the curve they may feel more pressure into the plant. That being said, if the athlete is continuing to accelerate in linear velocity through the curve, they will likely deviate, and be unable to adequately maintain lean into the plant. Lean is a product of accelerating through the curve, not something artificially generated. @gianmarcotamberi Gianmarco keeps his chest up and attacks the curve VERY aggressively. This is how he is able to generate a lot if lean, and thus somersault.

@mateuszprzybylko with an INSANE jump at 6 foot something plus.
This is basically gymnastics. He has a lot of speed and somersault at takeoff. He uses a butt kicking strategy as the left leg recovers to the butt.
Mateus creates a massive block at the knee and hip in this video. The knee barely bends at all, as he is very low just prior to touchdown of the takeoff foot. Notice how he places the foot incredibly far in front of the hips. To benefit from placing the foot that far in front of the hips, Mateus has to be moving very very fast. If he were not doing so, I would suspect he wouldn’t be able to clear the jump from this far out or generate any forward somersault. If you watch his foot, you can see how it slides to the edges of his shoe. This is one of the signs of a good hinge moment. One thing I also found interesting, was the amount of force moving through his hip at touchdown. It appears as though his femur is about to come out of socket from the massive forces places on the leg during a correct takeoff. Mateus does have a bit of trouble generating a lot of forward somersault, evident by his takeoff leg hanging down, ever so slightly. This is likely because of how far is foot is in front of his hips; however, it could be due to the fact that he has a ton of lateral somersault. See how much he flips after he tucks. It is also important to recognize that Mateus is probably TRYING to jump upwards and towards the matt. As his foot leaves the ground, his torso is just past vertical, allowing him to generate a TON of lateral somersault. Remember, high jump is a twisting somersault, so he is trying to go upwards and flip laterally.

The 100th Penn Relays Carnival - Men's Olympic Development 110 Hurdles.
What I remember about this day!?! Hoping for no-shows to get a lane.😱 Getting a lane at the Penn Relays was by far the hardest meet to be officially in before I got there. Lol.
Best believe I was trying to get my name called. I made it on TV. ✊🏾 And the struggle was real, I ran in a under $10 white tank top and the old NC State bike tights that was for practice wear for the athletes I was coaching. Started from the bottom now I'm here!! ✊🏾I was on the come up, coaching myself. Thankful for those days... I simply refuse to give up on my dream of competition on the World's stage. #pennrelays

@jclarkthejumper is the closest to making this dunk
Here are some thoughts that I shared with Jonathan when asked how he could maximize his lift.
“(off the dribble) I think that’ll be easier to control. Lobs are better for height because of the arm contribution and speed, but if you have to worry about steering too much, and you can’t benefit from a big arm block, I’d take it off the dribble.
From that position I’d add a little more speed, and keep the curve in there. The curve will help you be lower because you’ll be able to lean, so your COM is lower to the ground. You could also step very slightly laterally with the penultimate step to lower further. The penultimate step knee was closer to the ground off the dribble and I’d suspect you had more lift on that attempt. One of the trickiest things about the dunk is the distance the ball has to move horizontally; you can see how much horizontal velocity the ball has as you bring it to the rim.“
As a side note, I think this dunk is very possible. With the right combination of speed, and a good angle, I think @jclarkthejumper will make this dunk. If the athlete can handle it. Good luck, Jonathan!

"Commonwealth Games Champion, @queenchristabel jumps close to 23 feet in long jump. —————————-
To achieve these sorts of jumps, you have to run fast and have a good takeoff strategy. The takeoff leg is relatively stiff and close to under the hips. This allows her to generate vertical velocity during the eccentric portion of the jump. In other words, even though she is yielding muscularly, using the same contraction that happen while lowering a weight, her COM is moving upwards, similar to a pole vaulter. Many times, if the athlete is in the right position, their strength and speed can vault them upwards and forwards into the pit.

@bstarc jump at 7 feet 7.5 inches. FLIGHT MECHANICS: What you do in the air matters.
@bstarc does a great job navigating the bar in flight by creating a tight, arched position as he rotates around the bar. ——————-
Because the center of mass is on a fixed path, moving one limb will cause a reactionary movement of another limb. Further, because angular momentum is conserved, manipulating the moment of interia by arching more will increase angular speed. This increases the speed at which the athlete rotates around the bar.
When high jumpers appear to “drape” around the bar, it is largely because of the somersault that was generated on the ground; however, arching more can assist them in generating a bit more rotation/angular speed. Brandon does a great job moving his limbs around the bar, dropping his right hand, head, and legs. As he rotated around the bar, he extends the knee, allowing him to cleanly clear the bar. Remember, nothing you do can change the momentum that is generated on the ground- once you are in flight, the trajectory of the mass is set, as is the angular momentum of body. Manipulating limbs around the bar will only get you so far. While high jumpers seek to maximize rotation, long and triple jumpers seek to minimize rotation as much as possible to maintain posture and avoid striking the sand too soon. They do so by staying as extended as possible in flight (greater moment of inertia) and rotating the arms and legs in a cyclic motion to rotate the torso clockwise.
When I look back on this season, several points stand out to me, which will continue to be at the core of my leadership philosophy. 🔑Focus on talent, but never forget character matters. 🔑Discover the “why” of each athlete. 🔑Ensure to model and teach the value of gratefulness. 🔑Empower each athlete - they are ultimately responsible for their own growth. 🔑Create an environment where the top people are mentors to the new athletes.... 📈 Truth by numbers - the season speaks for itself. We had an undefeated season, won WVSSAC Conference Championship, and finished the season winning the Statewide Championship. 🏆🏆🏆 The hurdling group broke 6 of 7 possible school records, three state records, and including their ability to consistently set PR’s: broke a total of 14 records throughout the season. 🔥🔥🔥 This will certainly be a season for the history 📚 as many records were 9 plus years old. Proud to Coach such an amazing group. #motivationmonday#trackandfieldlife#middleschooltrack#hurdlesquad#lifemotivation

Want to improve your hurdle clearance? Then you need to see @dking110h coach James Hillier's article on hurdles and reflexive power in this week's Athletics Weekly. There are parallels with the penultimate step in the long jump... mats can also be used to promote a "stepping down from above action" on the penultimate to reflexively and automatically set up an optimum hurdle take-off step and clearance.
