    Sorry I read this online and couldn't believe it.

    So this guy doubled Michael Jordan's vertical?

    He jumped so high that he could get the majority of his body over a basketball rim.

    It would be incredible to see it on video, but I guess none exist in English (possibly in Chinese?)

    I've seen vids of of people doing like super fast cartwheels and using velocity to have a super high airtime at the end of their line. so it might be true

    So he beat the current High Jump world record (245 cm) in 1988, from a standing position? Well, if there's a written account on the Internet, it must be true.

    Vertical leap would be how high his head went, he could have drawn his legs up to his chest as high as possible to accomplish this(He was an acrobat,therefore likely flexible).

    Assuming (and I'm rounding off) he's 5'6" getting his head let's say to 9 foot to get his legs through the hoop without hitting his head at the top of it, that would make a 42' vert.

    Impressive, but not unheard of.

    Who said it was from a standing position? The claim is that he beat it by 1 cm, its not that far fetched.

    If he went into it tumbling I can believe it. Some of those little tumblers get some good height. However physically impossible just standing.
