A good take-off angle is 30 – 35 degrees, below 30 increases the risk of medial ankle injury. The take-off position depends on run-up speed and the bar height. Higher speeds (7.5 m/s +) and bars (2.20m +) require a take-off position over 1m out from the bar (position ‘y’)and less than 30cm from the end of the bar (position ‘x’). Junior jumpers should practice jumping from approx. x = 0,35m y = 0, 70m. This position should be decided by a high jump coach or using video analysis.
