Dick Fosbury

Richard Douglas “Dick” Fosbury (born March 6, 1947) is a former track and field athlete who revolutionized the high jump event, using a back-first technique, now known as the Fosbury Flop. His method was to sprint diagonally towards the bar, then curve and leap backwards over the bar.
