Within a few hours, Dick Fosbury would go from being unknown to one of the most influential athletes in Olympic history.
High jump rules stipulate only that competitors must jump off one foot at takeoff; there is no rule governing how a competitor crosses the bar, so long as he or she goes over it.

    Richard “Dick” Fosbury (b. 1947) grew up in Medford, Oregon, a small town in a state with a passion for track and field. Fosbury’s innovation emerged from desperation born of personal tragedy. When Fosbury was fourteen, a drunk driver killed his younger brother Greg while the two boys were riding their bikes.

    In 1968, an American Dick Fosbury used a completely new style, called the Fosbury Flop, to win the 1968 Mexico Olympics by 2.24 m (7 ft 4 in). This style spread quickly, and soon floppers became dominant in high jump competitions. The last world record jump with the straddle technique was Vladimir Yashchenko's 2.34 m (7 ft 8 in) in 1978.

    At the 1968 Olympic Games, the rather unfortunately named American Dick Fosbury flipped the athletic world on its head when he rather bravely decided to jump over the bar backwards.

    The Eastern Cut-off, Western Roll and Straddle are methods that have been previously used by the world’s elite. However, the Fosbury Flop, which involves going over with the jumper's back to the bar, popularised by the 1968 Olympic champion Dick Fosbury, is now almost exclusively the technique adopted by all the top high jumpers.
