Angular Kinetics - Positioning the Center of Gravity for Motion

In JUMPING events, the PATH of the CG is a sign of skilled performance. If

High jumpers use body lean and body flexion to lower the CG, AND

PROLONG SUPPORT FOOT TIME they are able to increase takeoff


Among better pole-vaulters, the CG is first lowered, then progressively

elevated from the third-last step until takeoff. Lowering CG enables

lengthening of the vertical path over which the body is accelerated during

takeoff, allowing for a high vertical velocity at takeoff.
