I know that static vertical jump tests do always have a strong coorelation with how high some one can jump, but I never thought it possible, Holm, the shortest man to ever clear 2.40 would only have a 23 inch (59 cm) static vertical jump. I bet the majority of people on this forum could surpass that. That being said he must have extremely good reactive strength, which is apparent in the video below as he effortlessly clears 1.80m hurdles. Does anyone have any insights into the training methods of stefan and his father?
You can see him jump over 1.80m hurdles and do the vertec test here. Great documentry, unfortunately its not in english.
