Thesis

Thesis

In the Kneel Jump, a contestant kneels on their knees at a given line and must have their feet flat on the floor with the bottoms up.From this position, the contestant then jumps as far forward as they can, land on their feet, and maintain their balance. The contestant is allowed to swing their arms back and forth to gain momentum for the leap forward. The practicality of this event comes from the quickness and balance one has to have while being out on the moving ice during break up season.
