Fourth-Place Medal

British long jump champion J.J. Jegede jumped over three MINIs this week as part of a promotional event for a new, 2012 limited edition of the vehicle.

Placed side-by-side, the cars spanned six meters. Jegede's personal best in the long jump is 8.04 meters (26.37 feet). A similar jump would have earned him eighth place at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

Jegede is looking to make his first Olympics.

Three MINIs isn't so cool, though. You know what's really cool? Jumping from one end of the Tower Bridge to another. Get it done, Mr. Jegede.
