Learn about track and field history

Wilt's era jumped differently, and into different pits. The #'s cannot be compared to modern #'s. Wilt's 6'6.75 PR was actually better than the 5th place jumper out of the 27 competitors in the 1956 Olympics. Wilt is far superior of a high-jumper than a 6'10 jumper today due to his relative #'s he produced in his era.
