Most sports evolve over a long period of time. Rules are changed, patterns of play alter, techniques are adjusted. Only rarely does a sport take a great leap forward at one point. But in Mexico, the world of high jumping changed for ever. And for that, we can thank the American Dick Fosbury, the man who revolutionised his sport by introducing a new style to the world – the Fosbury Flop.
