For Rwandan Tutsi men of the 19th century, jumping your own weight was the only way to measure up to society as a man. On average a Tutsi man jumped anywhere from 2 to 2.52 meters without any kind of training. With today's training they could have probably achieved a 3 meter jump. Fortunately, modern day high jumper Javier Sotomayor doesn't have to feel too bad. In 1993 he broke a world record by jumping 2.45 meters.
