Hey, this is my friend Eric Skedel at the Igloo Invitational Meet held in Altoona, PA. This throw put Eric as the top thrower in high school track and field as of April 6, 2006. Ok, just watch. Enjoy...
Vincent Scillitani begin_of_the_skype_highlighting end_of_the_skype_highlighting competes in the Long Jump at the Texas High School 4A Regional Track meet in April 2006. Vincent set a personal best of 23'8" in the meet and scratched on an estimated 25' jump (see jump #5). In 2007 Vincent will be a senior at Foster High School in Richmond Texas.
In the 1972 Olympic 800 m final, Wottle immediately dropped to the rear of the field, and stayed there for the first 600 m, at which point he started to pass runner after runner up the final straightaway, finally grabbing the lead in the final metres to win by just 0.03 seconds ahead of the favorite, the Soviet Yevgeny Arzhonov. This gained him the nickname of "The Head Waiter." I responded with this video because I think they are both spectacular finishes!
***UPDATE: This Video Won 1st In STATE! (Texas TSA)***
This was a TSA project which is being entered in a video competition. I am a high school long jumper, and decided to study how technique can benefit an athletes jump!
