Throughout the entire history of the Olympic men’s high jump competition, not one single athlete from Kenya has ever finished on the podium.  That’s right.  From 1896 to 2012, 28 Olympic men’s high jump competitions have taken place, and not one single Kenyan has won a medal.  Not gold.  Not silver.  Not even bronze.

At the moment, you may not find that hard to believe, but you will after watching the video below, which comes to us from a high school track meet in Kenya.

Check it out:

I can’t help but think that one of these Kenyan high schoolers may be a solid candidate to break their country’s streak of futility in the Olympic high jump competition.
