  1. 1. HIGH JUMP Introduction
  2. 2. The high jump is a track and field event in which competitors must jump unaided over a horizontal bar placed at measured heights without dislodging it. In its modern most practised format, a bar is placed between two standards with a crash mat for landing. At the elite level, athletes run towards the bar and use the Fosbury Flop method of jumping, leaping head first with their back to the bar. Performed since ancient times, competitors have introduced increasingly more effective techniques to arrive at the current form.
  3. 3. The discipline is, alongside the pole vault, one of two vertical clearance events to feature on the Olympic athletics programme. It is contested at the World Championships in Athletics and IAAF World Indoor Championships, and is a common occurrence at track and field meetings. The high jump was among the first events deemed acceptable for women, having been held at the 1928 Olympic Games. Javier Sotomayor (Cuba) is the current men's record holder with a jump of 2.45 m (8 ft 014 in) set in 1993 the longest standing record in the history of the men's high jump. Stefka Kostadinova (Bulgaria) has held the women's world record at 2.09 m (6 ft 1014 in) since 1987, also the longest-held record in the event.
  4. 4. Competitors jump unaided and take off from one foot over a four-metre long horizontal bar. They seek to clear the greatest height without knocking the bar to the ground. All competitors have three attempts per height, although they can elect to pass, i.e. advance to a greater height despite not having cleared the current one. Three consecutive failures at the same height, or combination of heights, cause a competitors elimination. If competitors are tied on the same height, the winner will have had the fewest failures at that height. If competitors are still tied, the winner will have had the fewest failures across the entire competition. Thereafter, a jump-off will decide the winner.
  5. 5. High jumpers shoes can have a maximum thickness of 13 millimeters in the sole and 19 millimeters in the heel.The runway is at least 15 meters long. Competitors may place as many as two markers along the runway. The crossbar is 4 meters long.
  6. 6. Twelve jumpers participate in the Olympic high jump final. In the 2004 Athens Games, 38 men and 34 women participated in their respective qualifying rounds trying to earn a spot in the final. Qualification results do not carry over into the final.
  7. 7. Jumpers must take off on one foot.A successful jump is one in which the crossbar remains in place when the jumper has left the landing area. Competitors may begin jumping at any height announced by the chief judge, or may pass, at their own discretion. Three consecutive missed jumps, at any height or combination of heights, will eliminate the jumper from competition. The victory goes to the jumper who clears the greatest height during the final.
  8. 8. If two or more jumpers tie for first place, the tie-breakers are: 1) The fewest misses at the height at which the tie occurred; and 2) The fewest misses throughout the competition. If the event remains tied, the jumpers have a jump-off, beginning at the next greater height. Each jumper has one attempt. The bar is then alternately lowered and raised until only one jumper succeeds at a given height.

  15. 15. Diving Hurdles Steeplechase Long Jump Triple Jump
  16. 16. Hurdles are a track and field event that requires runners to jump over hurdles along the track. The hurdles are spaced apart evenly to allow the runner to create a steady rhythm and cadence. There are three hurdle race distances: the women 100 m, men 110 m and men and women 400 m
  17. 17. Divers use the spring board to help propel them into the air to reach a height that allows them to perform a variety of maneuvers. A diver jumps on the spring board several times to create momentum. Once enough momentum is created, the diver jumps up high and slightly forward to perform his dive, then lands in the water.
  18. 18. he steeplechase is a race around a track with four oversize hurdles. One hurdle features a water pit behind it. Runners must jump over the hurdles and are allowed to step on the hurdle to help propel themselves over
  19. 19. Long jumpers sprint along a narrow track toward a line, which the athlete cannot step over. Good long jumpers can time their runs with precision and step as close to the back edge of the line without going over as they jump and propel themselves forward into a sandbox.
  20. 20. Much like the long jump, the triple jump begins along a narrow track. The athlete must sprint toward three designated zones -- that are marked by lines -- before jumping for distance. The jumper must touch down with one foot in each zone before launching for distance into the sandbox. The jumping sequence is commonly referred to as the hop, step and jump phase.
