Long jump athletic game

The long jump (previously called as broad jump) is an athletic (track and field) event or game in which athletes attempt to land as far from their take-off points as possible.
The Competitors sprint down a runway (at elite level, generally coated with the same rubberized surface as running tracks), jump to the extent that they can off a somewhat raised wooden board into a pit filled with fine gravel or sand. The minimum distance from the board to the indentation made by the participant in the gravel is measured. If the participant starts his leap with any part of his foot facing the board the jump is affirmed illegal and no distance is recorded.
The correct format of the competition differs, but normally each competitor will get a number of attempts to make his or her longest jump, and simply the longest legal jump counts towards the results. The participant with the longest legal jump at the end of competition is confirmed or declared as the winner. The Speed in the run-up and a high leap off the board are the fundamentals of achievement at the discipline, and it is unsurprising that many sprinters, especially including Carl Lewis, as well compete successfully in the long jump.
