6-foot jumpers after 50 are rare; how about 2 in a few minutes?

I remember looking up to 6-foot high jumpers when I was high school freshman. Soon I lost the awe and cleared 6-1 eventually (in hurdler spikes). But the amazement returns in masters track, especially for guys over 50. Matt McCubbins shares my appreciation for the species. He’s shared a link to a YouTube video he shot at North Carolina nationals of 53-year-old Greg Vidos and 56-year-old Bruce McBarnette clearing 1.84 meters, or 6-0 1/4. (with Bruce claiming an M55 American record). And great slo-mo, Matt!
