AVP Skills Challenge <vertical leap>

Post by D Becke » Sat, 23 Aug 1997 04:00:00


I heard about the unreal AVP skills challenge where Kiraly, Whit, and
others were jump reaching 13-14 feet out of the sand....

Lets do the math and find out
exactly what these guys vertical leaps are if they can get out of the
sand and touch 13-14 feet....

O.K., first the message states that Kiraly got well above 13 feet....
O.k., lets say well over 13 feet means 13 feet 4 inches....

Kiraly is 6'3", and I am 6'2", and I reach approximately 8 feet, so I'll

give him two more inches of reach for a total of 8'2" of reach....

To touch 13 feet out of the sand Kiraly's vertical would have to be 5
feet two inches out of the sand....

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA..............

Wow, 5 feet two inches... I heard his vert indoors was 44 inches during
his prime. He just gets better with age huh. Of course it is easier to
jump out of the sand though. Hehehe....
Hmmm.....

More math...

6'3" + 5'2" = 11'5"...... Hahahahaha... His head is 11 feet 5 inches
above the net when he jumps..... This means his thighs are right at
the top of the tape.... All he would have to do is bend his knees and he

could just jump over the net after he hits... HAHAHAHAHAAAAA.....

Imagine this...

Johnson serves........Steffes with the pass.........Liola sets right
on............Kiraly goes up for the
block.........Ooooooooh..........Steffes tools another shot off Kiraly's

crotch....Thats gotta hurt!

Johnson serves another........Liola with the pass......Steffes with the
set......Kiraly goes up for the block.....BANG!!!.....WOW.....Kiraly
KONG BLOCKS Liola with his THIGH!!!....What a great
block!!!........Airborne timeout.......Ok, Kiraly has safely landed back

on planet Earth.....We can continue the game.....

Heheheeeeee.... ;-)

I must say I was curious about this also....I think the mesurement was
taken from
the bed rock under the sand....Im 5'9 so I only need a 6'4 vert to sky with
pros.....
