Fosbury Flop

Twenty-one-year-old Dick Fosbury changed the high jump on October 20, 1968. His backward facing jump won the gold and set an Olympic record. The record-breaking 7-foot 4-1/4-inch high jump propelled Fosbury into the limelight. His high jump technique, which became known as the “Fosbury Flop,” would later become a standard style at high jumping events.
