Running Long Jump

Have you ever done the running long jump? How far can you jump? I’m interested in trying this out. I was talking with a guy yesterday and somehow this topic came up. He said he’s jumped 24 feet and I was amazed. I suppose the idea of trying that out never occured to me and now I’m planning to give it a shot sometime. The world record is something like 29 feet.

Then there is this thing called the triple jump which is essentially a jump using a board. The current world record is 60 ft and they say average Joe’s can go 40 ft easy. That’s really cool. Here’s a movie animation of how this works. Oh, and here are some Instructions.
