    The men's long jump world record has been held by just four individuals for the majority of time since the IAAF started to ratify records. It was in a dramatic showdown against Carl Lewis who also surpassed Beamon's record that day but his jump was wind-assisted (and thus not legal for record purposes). Powell's record 8.95 m (29 ft 4 1⁄4 in) has now stood for over 29 years.

  • It was the Transformation of China.........

    Up until 1910s / 1920s the Chinese still their had their old traditional customs...... but then WW2 happen, then Mao and communism hit China and pretty much destroyed China and its old culture.

    In January 1958, Mao Zedong launched the second Five-Year Plan, known as the Great Leap Forward, a plan intended to turn China from an agrarian nation to an industrialized one and as an alternative model for economic growth to the Soviet model focusing on heavy industry that was advocated by others in the party. Under this economic program, the relatively small agricultural collectives that had been formed to date were rapidly merged into far larger people's communes, and many of the peasants were ordered to work on massive infrastructure projects and on the production of iron and steel.
