We have liftoff.
Grant Haskins soared through the air.
For a moment he floated in slow-motion, drifting through time and space.
His arms spun like propellers as he transitioned from ascending to descending. As he approached his landing he thrusted his arms in front of him to gain every last inch.
A million tiny grains of sand exploded out in front of him upon impact.
Haskins stood by as officials measured the jump, which was clearly something.
And to think - a week ago the ThunderRidge senior was the No. 7 long jumper in Colorado, and 50th in the country. He owned a personal best of 21-11.25 then.
A lot can change in a week.
While Haskins' performance was insanely impressive, it wasn't the only one that was eye-popping - the 2022 edition of the Broomfield Shootout definitely lived up to the hype.
It was a high quantity and high quality meet.
