X-King and Justin are the local UK stats guys, so they might know the answer to that. My guess, though, is you'll need to look up previous results or contact the area clubs (always the best place to start for most such things).

Hi Shaun.

As Dan pointed out I am British myself, so I do know the distances needed to compete at club level, national level and/or international level within Great Britain.

To compete successfully at British club level you need distances anywhere from 6.0-7.5m.

To compete successfully at national level you need to jump distances in the 7.0-8.0m range(with the current state of British jumping 8.00m is only 3rd best in the country!)

And to compete successfully at international (and if all goes well, World level) you need to jump anywhere from 7.90-8.50m.

There are several links(actually there are 8 links) on training for Long Jump listed below:

There are many Videos of people Long-Jumping

Carl Lewis is a good example as he is a great technician.

Carl Lewis Long Jumping Videos:

http://www.carllewis.com/video.jumping.menu.1.html

They only take around 5-10 minutes to fully download.
But they are worth the wait.

The slow-mo replays are the best, as they show front-on views of King Carl in full flow.

Regrading the distnace for the Standing Long Jump,
What is your PRs in both Long Jump & 100m?
Are you an explosive starter?

If you provide me with the above info. I will be able to provide with an adequate distance which you should be achieving for the Stnading Long Jump.

If you want any information on either Standing Jumps within the OG from 1900-1912, and the current World Bests for standing jumps(SLJ & SHJ), and reported marks in all standing jumps just e-mail me.
