Watch: High school girls' relay wins using high jump bar instead of baton
The Fairfax (Va.) High School girl's 4x100-meter relay team decided to get creative with its stick-passing, and it paid off as it won the race while using a high jump bar as a baton.
“It was actually Senior Night and we wanted to do something fun and just have a blast that night,” Fairfax senior Te’Ona Witherspoon told LetsRun.com. “And we were just like, ‘What’s something different that other teams don’t really do?’ And we were like, ‘Let’s run a 4×1 with a pole.’
Millennials are making track and field interesting again, as a Swedish teen set the pole vault world record from a hoverboard in January.
The world record for the 4x100-meter relay using a high jump bar has been set. Here's hoping we see this technique used in Rio this summer.
