Cracking the Long-Jump Code

"People say, 'It's jumping, not rocket science,'" said Melvin Ramey, a biomechanist who works with USA Track & Field and a professor emeritus of civil and environmental engineering at the University of California, Davis.
"Well, no. Bryan Clay and biomechanist Melvin Ramey (right) review video of his jump. Ramey, who's studied the sport since the late 1950s when he was an athlete at Penn State, now uses a point-and-shoot camera that records at 200 frames per second, which is seven times more powerful than most video cameras. Though long jumpers only spend about .15 seconds on the takeoff board, his camera is fast enough to capture 30 frames of that sequence alone. The trouble, Ramey said, is that long jumpers don't merely want images to study. They want numbers. In the absence of those numbers, jumpers are often left to go on "feel" during training: Does one technique feel more effective than another? Do they feel as if they're more explosive off the board when they strike their forefoot a certain way? Ramey, who uses his own equipment from UC Davis, said he can crunch those numbers by "digitizing" his video and feeding the data into a series of equations, but it is an agonizingly slow process. "Maybe an hour or less if I really get after it," Ramey said. Joe Walker, the longtime track-and-field coach at the University of Mississippi, has worked with Ramey and other scientists.
