all that talk, but i bet you can do I 6'6 high jump.
No one can beat me in dunking. hahaaahaa
oh yeah, well go higher.
you wont believe coach, but I got you a high 7'0 jumper
Thomas was talking with his group of friends and bragging his slam dunking skills. Carlos was tired of his mouth and bet him he couldn't clear a 6'6 high jump. Thomas went home to grab shoes and prove Carlos wrong
hey now, be careful there.
Surprisingly Thomas cleared the jump. Carlos was shocked and went higher to 6'8. Thomas cleared it like nothing. Carlos rushed him over to the track Coach office.
As coach Lohr was organizing the roster for the mega meet in Illinois, Carlos tells him he got a 7'0 high jumper, coach didn't believe him. Thomas tells him the truth so coach invites him to track meet that Saturday. Coach called the organizer to put in a late entry for
Great job Thomas
Two days later Thomas cleared a 6'8.25 his first time for Nationals. He then hit 7'0.25, Linden University on the seventh jump. coach said no more because he didn't want him hurt for the competition against professionals in two months. He placed fourth in world class.
August 2007, Thomas has been training for 8 months for Oskaka world champs. Him and Holm went to finals. Thomas attempted to do 7'3 jump and missed with 2 tries left. Then he makes it and clears a 7'8.5 jump with celebration. Holm loosed and Thomas won with mass of 8'2.
Now, as the World championship jumper of 2007 Thomas sits back and six years later doesn't improved a bit. Thomas just wanted to prove Carlos wrong. The weirdest thing is the person that said high jumping is the most boring jump, but yet wo world record.
