1912 Olympics - Standing Long Jump The summer Olympics used to include standing jumping events: long jump, high jump and triple jump. Here's a film clip of the standing long jump competition from the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm, Sweden. The 1912 Games were the last Olympics to feature standing jump disciplines. Norway is the last remaining country to feature them in their own national athletics championships. The United States Air Force Academy and Canada's Royal Military College still use the standing long jump as a way to gauge the physical fitness levels of their students.

In elementary school we did the standing long jump as part of a fitness test. We just did it on the level gym floor, though. These jumpers had the advantage of being slightly elevated above the sand pit.
