Yan Zhi Cheng, Chinese Acrobat and Performer, 97" Vertical Jump!
- on 19 July 1988, at a performance in The Hague, jumped (without trampoline or any assistance) through a hoop of which the lowest point was measured at 97". He used two legs to set off, so his jump isn't the official world record. However, it is the highest human jump ever recorded. An absolutely ridiculous feat, Thats no doubt pushed the envelope on whats possible.
