Long Jump
Long jump

Long jump is an activity in athletics.

It has special skills – sprinting, jumping and landing.

We try to combine these skills, so as to increase the distance a person can jump.

Each time you try to increase the amount of your last jump.

  • Sprint towards the long jump (run very fast).
  • Take off from the launch pad on one foot.
  • Point both legs forward.
  • Land on two feet.
  • The point where your heels land marks the length of your jump.
  • The length is the distance from the launch pad to where your heels land.
  • You might have two or three jumps. The longest jump is marked as your best.
  • Next time you try to make it longer.
