  Open Question: Bob Beamon's record breaking
(continuation for the question) in the 1968 olympics resulted from an initial velocity of 9.5m/s at an angle 40 degree to the horizontal. Compute for Vix, Viy , time total, horizontal distance(range) and height.

  Open Question: 1991 World Track and Field
Assuming that g=9.80 m/s/s in Tokyo, what is the slowest possible launch-speed that would allow Beamon to travel that distance?

  Open Question: What do you think of this?
Had Bob Beamon *not* competed in the long jump in the 1968 Mexico City Olympics, Carl Lewis would have set world records in the long jump in 1981 (8m-62), 1982 (8m-76) and 1983 (8m-79). (I put this question in Running since there is no option for Track & Field.)

  Resolved Question: Why didn't Usain Bolt
He has the speed obviously, and he could have potentially broken Bob Beamons long-standing record. Sprinting speed propels the body further and with the right technique he could jump very long. setting a big record. Carl lewis did it in Los Angeles 84 have, and before him the legend Jesse Owens. Why wouldn't his handlers have looked at this.
