Hmm interesting. I can get somewhere around my upper chest/neck height (am 5'8" e.g. 68") and my vert is only about 30". 54" inches honestly doesn't seem like that much if you have good compression which is probably about a jump that I can do it seems like. Guy looks like he's about only 64" tall though so I mean it would be all the more impressive than at my height of 68"....

The high jumper is SICK though. Those hurdles are crazy.

That high jumper vid is sick!! The Box jump is impressive as well....but I think that this vid of a 240lbs O'lifter from Wichita Falls Weightlifting is even more impressive...maybe cause I'm a big guy myself, and jumping 53" onto anything seems nigh impossible to me!!! Here's the work & family safe link: http://wichitafallsweightlifting.us/...boxjumping.MPG

P.S.-- I guess I should have said, I'm not sure if this has been posted on the site before. Even if it has, I think it's still pretty impressive to watch.
