The High Jump is one of my favorite events though I get to see very little of it from where I am perched in the awards stands during the weekend. I have several favorite events including all of the field events and all of the races! The records in the high jump do not fall very often. One year, my nephew was graduating from college (2009) and I needed to go and be with him for the event which mean’t I would miss one day of the Meet of Champions. I asked that the cadet boys high jump be moved to Sunday that year so I could be there to watch Marcus Yoo break it. He did break it and it was wonderful to see!
