Wink **Highjump Competition**

Talked about this in the trials discussion thread. Although I don't really like threads like these, I think it will help many of you out there (including me) to push yourselves harder to get to a triple digit jump!.

Land a 100cm highjump any way possible. Rolling, static, SI, SIF whatever. 540 triple cranflip 720 unispin varial up it for all I care.

Rules:
1. Can't have landed a 100cm hop before.
2. Must show measuring tape from bottom up.
3. Must be 100cm. Not 99.8cm.
4. 1st 2nd and 3rd get to have the following siggy tag.
5. Wait a bit for others to read this thread. (24hrs?)

I dont think ill be getting 100cm any time soon. Should we subset this comp by tens?

50cm
60cm
70cm
80cm
90cm
100cm

?

Who knows, maybe someone could get the 50cm, and the next day, get the 60cm one aswell.

I dont know if you want to do this, or if you want to add some more, but not as much as I exampled.

Ill still push for 100cm.

Yeah, I was just thinking that is a pretty big increase for some of the people here are only hitting 40-60cm.

I can hit around 80cm, and up to the 90s if im having a good lucky day.
Its snowing another 4-6 inches tonight, so im sure that will help my jump height.

Hi!

I Liked the idea!... I can easily hope 75cm in SIF... Rarely 80cm!...

But i'm in!

And the Trophy is cool..Blue and black....I liked it

Bye!

Iv been wanting to improve my hop height for ages, this sounds like the perfect opportunity.
I have no idea what my hop height is at the moment, I will have to measure it sometime. It would be awesome to achieve 100cm.

A question:

You can jump 1M in a High Jump structure like this?


Or you need to jump to something and stay in!?

I think it's important to add on the rules if you need to stay in, or you just need to get the height!

Bye!

i think we should make this the jump competition thread. I would really like to get 100 but i honestly believe i have no more room for improvement besides getting 90 without a prehop. My rolling hop isnt to good tho (60 cm) would anyone like to have a 70 cm rolling hop competition?

You sure about that?

That's already over a metre so you cannot enter.
