Alan Barch Jr. is a 5’9″ athletic trainer who recently recorded the world’s first OFFICIAL
50 inch vertical jump.

This has to be the highest vertical jump ever recorded.

Many athletes have been RUMORED to have a 50 inch vertical leap, but they have never bothered to get tested.

Alan is the first who has OFFICIALLY been tested and measured.

It’s amazing to see how high he gets off the ground.

Here are the official results of his test:

Height: 5’9″

Standing reach: 7 feet 5.5 inches

Standing vertical jump: 50 inches

Running vertical jump: 54.5 inches
