Not "a" landing position, his landing position... Approximately. Kind of hard to see in the dark. But remember that 2 things dictate the width of the feet - hip width, and the relative lengths of the upper and lower leg. Long lower leg = narrower stance, because that's where the feet will be if the knees are aligned.
