Justin Darlington World Record

by Mike

Hi Jack,

I was wondering, have you seen the video of TFB member Justin Darlington, doing a 68.5 inches box jump? This video is incredible, and he is a good example to demonstrate that sometimes, impressive box jumps does translate into impressive vertical jump.

VerticalJumping.com Response: It is an impressive display, and yes, Justin has huge hops. People with impressive jumping ability will always be able to produce big box jumps, but it isn;t always the case where people who can do big box jumps will be able to produce big regular jumps.

I had a twin brother that had his head chin level over the basket. His head was about 13 inches over the rim. He did this while playing against our dad in a basketball gym about 12 years ago. My brother grabbed the rebound and went straight back up. His head went 13 inches over the basket. He layed the ball in the hoop instead because his head was past the basket. It was the most amazing thing I ever saw because I SAW IT WITH MY OWN EYES. This was a standing vertical because he did this without running first. This this when my twin brother was 16 years old at the time. Me and our our dad was amazed by it so we told him running vertical and he basically jumped 8 inches higher. His head was about 21 inches above the basket. Our dad measured his vertical afterward. At that time, my twin brother was 5’3 and had a standing reach of 6’10. HE COULD TOUCH 12’7 ON THE BACKboard while just standing first and he could touch 13’3 on the backboard while doing a running vertical. My twin brother standing vertical was 69 inches and his running vertical was 77 inches. I would had video taped it back when he did thi amazing thing, but our mom and dad did not own a video camera at that time. It sucks though because I want all of you people to see this amazing thing for yourself you people would be amazed by it as well. My twin brother is now 28 years old and is 5’8 now. It is very much possible to jump that high because my twin brother did it a while back while witnessing it and it was amazing to see. We never videotaped him doing it his name is not on the very top of this chart plus we never told Guininess Book of World Records about it. I just had to tell yah that it is possible jump that high.

My Twin brother is now 5’8. His name is Terrance Harvey. He was very athletic and still is. He is a great basketball player. Always has been, but he is currently doing something else right now. He is very talented at so many things so it is very hard for him to choose. He could easily get INTO THE NBA easily and dominate when he decides to try to get into the pros. He just had surgery 2 years ago. My brother never played high school basketball or college basketball because he had a very bad injury but never went into surgery for it because he decided not to at the time. Alot of people resemble him to Michael Jordan back then while playing in the gym and still do He is a person that can easily be better than Mj if he decides to play basketball again. No disrespect to Michael Jordan! Michael Jordan and Allen Iverson was my twin brothers favorite basketball players growing up and still is. Thats all I have to say about my twin brother.
