It isn't worthy for a big Track school like KU though, Hence Wilt didn't compete in the long jump in the NCAA - only in HS.
The 2011 California state champion long jumper hit 23' 4" in prelims and won with a distance of 22' 3.25". Wilt was definitely a great athlete but still on the same level as great athletes of today.
