100cm hop competition

So i've gotten pretty damn close to this, and I know I'm not the only one, so let's have a comp! haha

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.

can be rolling or sidehop

was your knee pain caused from squatting during sif hops? when my knee started hurting really bad it was from that...that was like 6 months ago, and i can't do too many hops without it bothering me

That's right.

Go see a chiropractor, your hips are probably unaligned (like mine). Extremely common cause of knee pain due to sitting with crossed legs and leaning on dominant leg when standing. My case was so severe I couldn't run or jump. Turned out I was also flat footed to boot, so I spend $500 for some CF custom orthotics (yum) and everything is going great. I'd also suggest spending some time in a gym using squat machines to get some rid of some muscle imbalances. Hope this helps, and get better!

And yes I'm going for this on a 24".
