I went to my first NYO (native youth olympics) tournament tonight. I'm not sure why I've never been to one before, but maybe I was out of town or something. It was interesting. This is Avery doing the One Foot High Kick. They have to kick the hanging ball with one foot and then land on the same foot as they kicked with which is completely counterintuitive. He won first place in the junior high division with 77 inches. The winner of the high school division kicked it at a whopping 102 inches! Apparently the record is 114 inches...that's like kicking the bottom of the backboard of a regulation basketball hoop! Insane!
