I met a junior athlete in Italy while training in Portglenone outside of Lignano, She was happy to stop training for a moment to pose for a photo with me. She was so tall I was blown away by her presence. She was a high jump/triple jumper. She is a credit to all the tall women who struggle with their height. This is not a problem that I struggle with, as I am usually the smallest athlete in each event and am towered by most athletes.I am in awe at those women who are blessed with long legs and a long body. The hard thing is using your limbs to the best of your ability. It is hard to make those long limbs work fast, but look at Bolt and the long limbs he uses to run the 100m .What is hard is to change what people expect of you. If you are small you are not expected to jump high, if you are tall you should be good at high jump.Anything is possible if you work at it long enough. Progression may be slow but progression is still progress. Don't give up dreaming, working or progressing reaching your goal as all things are possible.
