High Jump Approach – Goran Obradović

This is a great short video about the technical aspects of the high jump approach. It is part of a DVD produced by my friend Goran Obradović, who is a coach for jumping and multi events at Vojvodina Athletics Club Novi Sad, Serbia. Goran has also worked with many international jumpers for the Serbian team. The video gives a concise explanation of the physics involved and the main characteristics of the top jumpers. Really worth seeing a few times if you need a deeper understanding of the event and how to coach it. You can view Goran Obradović YouTube channel and contact him via his Facebook Page. To calculate the approach curve radius and final angle you can use my High Jump Approach Calculator
