Dick Fosbury Biography

Dick Fosbury became a living legend at the 1968 Mexico City Games when he astounded the crowd and the global television audience with his revolutionary technique, The Fosbury Flop, winning gold and setting a new Olympic Games record of 7’-4 ¼” in the process. Fosbury changed his event forever, as virtually every modern high jumper uses his technique.

A retired civil engineer, Fosbury currently dedicates himself to coaching kids in the high jump at clinics and camps across the country, speaking to groups and corporations about innovation and enjoying participating in Olympian alumni work around the world. He is Chairman of the Simplot Games Indoor Track Meet in Idaho, the largest indoor meet for high school athletes in the country.

Fosbury has served as Secretary-General of the World Association of Olympic Winners, past President of the World Olympians Association, Vice President and Treasurer of USOPA for 12 years, and is founding president of the Idaho USOPA Chapter. Becoming an Olympian changed his life in a profound way and he hopes to continue to inspire other Olympians and Paralympians to become Ambassadors of Sport and to become active in the USOPA.
