He later confirmed his dominance in the competition by breaking the world record, clearing at 5.78 meters.

  24. High five • Hello! • I agree with you In English you say high five or: give me five when you want to make the gesture.The gesture was created by Monta Sleets. When he was 2 years old he was watching his parents’ guests, who were war veterans – they were lifting their hands and saying: „five". The boy didn’t know the meaning of this, so he went to one of the guests and said: „Hi five!”, he thought Five was the name. Both parents and other guests found the gesture funny and repeated it, this way it was memorised by the boy. Many years later, when Mont started playing basketball, he used the gesture with his friends. Because it was used on basketball matches it soon became adopted by other teams.
