The term 'broad jump' means the same as the term 'long jump'. Where the long jump is an event where an athlete runs a short distance and then jumps through the air to see how far they can go, the standing broad (long) jump is where an athlete jumps through the air to see how far they can go from a standing position.

Broad Jump is standing still but the long jump is with a running start then jumping
It's the same event.
If you can perform a standing broad jump of over 10 feet, that would be an astounding feat. He injured both feet while attempting the dangerous feat.

A standing broad jump, not too far. A running jump, much further. And there are tricks, such as running and tossing weights backwards, which adds further distance to the jump.
Both the standing jump (straight vertical) and standing long jump have not been Olympic events since 1912, when they were discontinued. Ray Ewry held all the standing jump records, with his standing long jump record of 3.47 meters being most impressive until the sport was discontinued at the world level in 1938. There are rumours of 3.6 having been accomplished since, but since it is no longer a world class sport, they are difficult to verify.
Depends on age and size and method. Less distance is traversed in a standing broad jump than in a running jump. Too, there are tricks that can be used.
The record for the highest standing vertical jump is held by Gerald Sensabaugh. His jump was 46 inches at the NFL Combine. The longest recorded armspan is held by basketball player, Manute Bol, with a span of 8 feet 6 inches. He has a reach of 10 feet 5 inches.
World records were not kept for standing triple jump in 1904. The Olympic record was 10.58 meters held by Ray Ewry of the United States set at the 1900 Summer Games in Paris.
Personally, I think I would be impressed with a 13-15 foot jump. But Im a girl, and the national record for middle school girls is 18'. I can only jump 13' but if you're a boy you should be able to beat me.Whoever answered this, must not know the difference between a long jump and a standing long jump but as a twelve year old you should get from 5-7 feet.
well world record high jump is 8 feet
The world record is exactly 60 feet.
The answer will depend on how high the building is. A storey is not a recognised standard height. Also, it will depend on air resistance. Also, nobody can do a standing broad jump with a propulsion rate of 35 mph.If you ignore air resistance and assume that a propulsion rate of 35 mph is miraculously achieved, then if each storey is 14 feet, the person will travel 151.8 feet! If each storey is 16 feet then the horizontal distance is 162.3 ft.
No. The record jump for a rabbit is 39.2 inches according to Guinness Book of Records. Frogs can jump as high as ten feet. They have really strong leg muscles.
