Brett high jumping in 1977 or did Tim Setser drop kick him?
I have tried to explain to my kids what we had to land on when high jumping back then.
Here it is, nets full of foam pieces.
We had a cinder track and the pad was full of cinders too.
When you landed they would fly in your eyes.
I remember going to a meet at Hauser and dropping out of the competition at 6 foot because the padding did so little to cushion the fall. I still got second but at 5 11 it knocked the wind out of me when I landed.
I was glad when we got new pads and a paved track.
Dad said when he high jumped they landed in sawdust but they didn't do the Fosbury flop like we did. He scissored over the bar.
