Oregon Athlete's Contribution A Revolutionary Flop
An Oregonian revolutionized the sport of high jumping. Now the “Fosbury Flop” is the only technique used in the sport.
Register-Guard former associate editor Bob Welch has written a book on Dick Fosbury, “The Wizard of Foz: Dick Fosbury’s One-Man High Jump Revolution.”
KLCC’s Barbara Dellenback asked Welch how he chose Fosbury as his subject.
Note: A book kick-off party is scheduled for September 6th from 6-8pm at the Heritage Courtyard at Eugene’s Oakway Mall.
