Long Jump Test Results

The Standing long jump, also called the Broad Jump, is a common and easy to administer test of explosive leg power. An excellent result is greater than 2.50 meters for men (8' 2.5") and 2.00 meters for women (6' 6.75"). The World Record for the standing long jump is held by Norwegian Arne Tvervaag, who jumped 3.71 meters (12' 2.1") (from Wikipedia). See more long jumping records. Below are some of the test scores that have been found for a variety of sports, with not all of them being confirmed. If you know of any that should be here, let me know.
