How have I never heard of this guy before? Ray Ewry won the standing high jump competition in 1900 with a jump of 65 inches. That's right, one step and then 5 feet, five inches in the air. Unbelievable. This guy should be on the freakin' quarter or something, and yet no one has heard of him.

(Thanks for the link, Meghan!) ben
