Dick Fosbury Sailing over Bar at 1968 Olympic Games

American high jumper Dick Fosbury clears the bar on his third attempt at the 1968 Summer Games in Mexico City. Fosbury won the gold medal with this jump, clearing 7 feet, 4 1/4 inches, which also set Olympic and American records. Dick Fosbury's jumping style, dubbed the "Fosbury flop," in which the jumper clears the bar headfirst and backwards, revolutionized the game.
