i wanted to ask what the average high jump height people get their 8th grade year. I'm in 8th and doing high jump for the first time, i get 4 10 very consistantly but i can NEVER get 5 feet. I got second today but i say something stunning today. The guy who beat me started at 4 feet, and he broke his school record by getting 5 9... has anyone seen an 8th grader ever do that!! I think he's a future track star.
Should i do cross country?
Yeah, he is a great jumper :P..propbaby should be in varsity and might get some offers from colleges later on. A dude in my school can jump 6-0 or 6-1 and he is just a sophomore. Never seen an 8 grader
How long will it take me to prepare and run 1/2 marathon?
ah holy @*$*( that kid is good.. well i dont do high jump but i just had a meet today and from what i've heard the best a boy got on high jump was 4'9" so yah i think you're average. i think that kid is a future track star too, well good luck you're doing good. :)
What is the best way to throw a diskus?
That is a very good height. I had an 8th grader 2 years ago who jumped 6'1" which is the best athlete I have ever had at that age. Now he is "only" doing 6'3" so people develop at different ages you never know exactly what someone can do when they are older just because of what they did when they were younger.
I think my stride is messing me up?
Thats pretty good, I know a sophomore on my team that's jumping 6'5" and in 8th grade he jumped 6'2"
Just because he's jumping that high right now doesn't mean he'll improve for sure. People hit their limits. But to answer your question yes.
Its all about approachment and technique.
