The high jump, which has been an Olympic sport ever since the first of the modern games, is a straightforward requirement: to jump over a round section cross bar without knocking it down. Since it was first practised the technique has changed radically.The original scissors jump gave way to the roll, face down, introduced by the American Albritton in 1936. Another American, Dick Fosbury developed a new technique, called the Fosbury flop, in 1968, which consists in jumping with ones back to the bar. This is the technique that enables athletes to almost reach the legendary height of 2.50 m.
