Wolfgang Ritzdorf (German HJ Coach)  The High Jump community is very sad to lose another of it's great mentors today.  Wolfgang passed away yesterday after a short illness.  He was a friend, colleague and mentor to many of the country's HJ coaches and athletes and will be sorely missed. Sleep well Wolfgang and thank you for your support, advice and friendship.

DICK FOSBURY died 12th March 2023 Age 76  We are very saddened to hear of the death of Dick Fosbury.  A man who became a Legend in his own Lifetime.  In 2009 some of us had the pleasure to meet this lovely man who talked so humbly about his career. To be able to talk to the man who is responsible for everything we do in High Jump today was incredible.  The sport is the poorer now you are no longer here. You will be remembered forever.  RIP Dick Fosbury.
