Storyboard Text

  • It all started hear where Thomas and his friends make a bet about who can jump higher and Thomas says, "I can jump higher than everyone here".  Thomas impresses his friends by jumping over the pole and there Thomas amazing talent starts.  The top jumper for the school decides to challenge Thomas  and he raises the bar 2 in.  He did not pass the bar.                                                                                                                        
  • Thomas decides to go professional with his talent.  He goes to a completion and he jumps against a lot of people but he does make it to the top two but the announcer calls the round and he says, " Its a tie".  Thomas received award an award.  
  • Throughout Thomas's journey he compete in many different events and he wins almost every single one .  As you can tell this kid is good at what he does but what makes him so good?
  • Of Course every time someone is doing good or becoming successful there always has to be some haters.  In 2008 Japanese TV ask a scientists  begin to study Thomas and they discover the Thomas's Achilles Tendon is even bigger than a human they call it the Achilles of a giant.  They come across they are very long and they are comparing Thomas Achilles to a kangaroo because he jumps really high and it is not common.
  • Through out the story scientist wonder what is up with this kid (Thomas's record is 8"2).  They say that more power is stored in the spring when compressed more when you get released, people jump higher because they have a drop step (when you run and step).
  • The tendons are one puzzle piece.  Thomas has not improved one centimeter in six years since he entered professionally.
