The 30 foot barrier in the long jump is the last of those classic barriers. We are not even close enough to other possible new barriers to consider them seriously right now.
30 feet..wow! Can't imagine... when that one is challenged better take a parachute.

Yet we don't really hear about that do we?

I can see a similar situation with the Lineal. If the fans take the power back then this title will mean what it was designed for, we might see some real effort and even a shot at that record. BUt its tough lol.
Yeah plus didn't Louis fight more often than boxers fight these days? That probably also contributed to that record.

Right, Tony. No modern heavyweight is going to fight as often as Louis. Period.
