Wow, excellent take on the challenge. The commentary and dialogue was excellent and I thought mirrored real commentary pretty well. Funny too! Nicely done!

Wow, what a creative story.  I used to do long jump, so this was a especially fun.  To tell the story entirely through sports commentary was impressive.  Lalwal brought an interesting angle to it!
                              
                              Good use of the anti-grav in the story, and a nice ending.  Well done.

I have the darndest feeling your writing has a little Hitchhiker's Guide influence.

I loved it! The Really Long Jump was super funny (and so is its title). I quite liked the way you told the whole story with only dialogue and no indication of who was talking outside of the dialogue. I didn't get lost once and I was laughing the whole way through.
                              Job well done :)
