High Jump: The Old vs New Technique

The Old Technique: Straight On/Scissors Technique
-Inside foot lifts past bar then the other in a scissoring motion.

The Modern "Fosbury Flop":
-Body goes over the bar head and shoulders first, sliding over on the back and landing in a fashion which would likely have broken his neck in the old, sawdust landing pits

Loved high jumps that we did in Primary School those days...till I realised I didn't grow any taller...
