Standing high jump
It is performed in the same way as high jump, with the difference being that the athlete stands still and jumps with both feet together.
One of the best results ever is 1.90 m by Swedish athlete Rune Almén in 1980 which at the time was a Swedish record and an unofficial world record. Later he also jumped 1.90 m, which today is the world record.
