It'd be funny to see the police chasing him across a series of backyards on COPS. :D

#6 I believe you can get them at IKEA as part of their "FLYT" line of sneakers. IKEA, Swedish for "Holy crap that guy can jump!"

I don't think people understand what #1 was trying to say... otherwise ppl would thumb his comment up :D

What he meant is we all heard the saying "white man can't jump"... thus....

At his best in 2005 Stephan Holm jumped 7'10 1/2". Which is an incredible 1'11 1/4" higher than he is tall. Nobody else has ever jumped that much higher than his own head. I really like his 6 Degrees of Jumping video where he demonstrates different high jump techniques. Of course his Athens gold medal winning jump is a thrill to watch. His run up is so fast and his takeoff really far from the bar.

This is easily explained.
What you don't see, just out of shot, are a series of trampolines.
