Gold medal Olympic high jumper Dick Fosbury will be in Boise, Idaho on October 15, 2014 to celebrate innovators as keynote speaker for the Idaho Technology Council’s Hall of Fame awards ceremony.
Fosbury set a world record with a 7’4 1/4 inch jump at the 1968 Summer Olympics using his innovative “Fosbury Flop” jumping technique. Before the “Fosbury Flop”, everyone was jumping forward. However, when Fosbury ran and jumped backwards to arch his back over the bar, everyone else followed suit. His innovation revolutionized the sport of the high jump.
So come out to this event and meet one of the world’s greatest innovators and hear him speak about how not only his innovation impacted the world, but how great minds affect the world in great ways each and every day.
