I’m super impressed by this. We posted earlier this week on a video that OG Ronaldo threw up on his ig and now there are several videos with his ups and I felt I needed to run it back because its so cool. According to the post, Ronaldo says that his vertical is at 110 cms (43.3 inches).
Here is a chart that shows norms for vertical to rank it.

Now, that chart is just something from the internets, but I happen to know a little something about vert because when I was in high school I was in the mid 30′s depending on the day and what I had for lunch, so I can vouch that this is a useful chart.
Let’s just think about this. To put some perspective on it, Mike Jordan’s vert is reported to be in the high 40s. LeBron is reported to be in the mid 40′s. Kobe is at 38. Cristiano Ronaldo is reported have a vertical at around 78 cms (30 inches).
He next attempted 113 cms, with not as much success.
* By the way, I love that this is one of the countries greatests sporting legends and it appears that he just works out at some random fitness club in a strip mall. Ronaldo is the peoples champ! A man of the people! He’s just like us.
* The music selection though…. Love it. And because I’m good at this internets thing …. I present you “Summertime” from the album “Don’t You Remember The Future” by Jamie Jones
** Update **
As pointed out by OG Winger Tyler Lacock on twitter, there are different ways of measuring a vertical and comparing the numbers to NBA dudes is off. I agree with that…
