What a jump! Kenyan high schooler makes crazy leap--on video

 
Kenya is taking the typical American track meet to a whole new height! Since it was posted on May 23, this YouTube video of two Kenyan high school athletes taking on the high jump has reached over 3 million views. Watch below…

 


 

For most American teens, the question would be, who cares that much about one track meet? But for this track meet in Mosoriot, Kenya, spectators witnessed something so incredible that it would be hard for the video not to go viral. Not only were both competitors able to clear the bar, which stood over six feet tall, but they were also able to complete the jump without a mat to land on. Um, wow. Cue the applause, please!
