That looks a lot higher than that! Looks like he's not even making an effort.

It's from a Swedish sports news page. Loads of video ranging from gymnastics to grecco wrestling. I'm pretty sure its legit. The change in camera angles could be nothing more than multiple takes spliced together.

That guy is Stefan Holm. One of the worlds best high-jumpers. Thats easy for him. I've seen him doing crazier things. The cool thing is, his only like 1.81 and has a personal best of 2.40.

In that case, color me impressed.

I guess part of the reason it looks super-fake is because I am not accustomed to seeing people jump nearly 4' hurdles... just looks odd...

It is always nice to see how bad I am in comparison to the best out there.
