Dont most lifters in the olympics have a slight backward jump? It seems like in all the videos i watch, they land maybe an inch or two behind where they jumped from...

I have read technique teaching ebooks and such that have said that it is better to jump back, they were of poor quality and not at all useful, but the coaching vids from WCC also advocate jumping back a few inches, which is why i ask.
