Undoubtedly but she could be doing it so much better, which is why I find her so frustrating.

Sorry, but you just don't know that to be true. The landing portion of a LJ is probably the last thing to worry about, as my good friend Marlow outlined earlier.

When a woman jumps 725, she must be doing a lot of things right.

We could have a WR holder on our hands with a JJK/Heike/Fiona type proficiency.

Nobody corrected it earlier because she was winning and it's probably too late now to expect any major improvements because she's still winning :(

I actually want her to be consistently beaten so she will be forced to do something about it


Go read the post by lonewolf. if you do not understand why this jump by Reese is pretty efficient go read that post until you understand it. He has pointed out that many jumpers with the position shown in your picture end up falling back and losing more distance than if their legs were under them.

By the way, if you think that you know more about this than lonewolf I won't bother reading any of your posts about track and field technique.
