Long jump
Around the Academy:

Having fun in the sand
Step four

On landing, bend your knees and move your upper body forward as you hit the sand.

To get a longer jump and prevent yourself from falling backwards, lean to one side as you land, using one elbow for balance.

After landing, remember walking back through the sand pit will get you disqualified in a competition.
