Simply Amazing (Kenya High School Athletics Edition)

UPDATE: Tom has brought to my attention the fact that actually, this (below) was the traditional way the high jump was done before Dick “fearless” Fosbury invented the “Fosbury Flop” in 1968.

********************************

This is extreme high jumping. I hope the Kenyan Sports Secretary’s office and Athletics Kenya have seen this and are thinking of ways to help these kids go pro, and in the process mint a few Olympic medals for the country.
