One of the most exciting and difficult sports in athletics is the long jump. The sport derives from the Ancient Olympic Games, as being the only jumping event of the Ancient Olympic’s pentathlon. As a sport the long jump (also called as broad jump) is a track and field event in which athletes combine speed, strength and agility in an attempt to leap as far as possible from a take-off point. Along with the triple jump, the other event that also measure jumping for distance, as a group, are referred to as the "horizontal jumps".

In recent football history, there are plenty midfielders to compete for the title of the greatest. From Nedved and Seedorf to Xavi and Iniesta, the comparisons among the fans are frequent and demonstrate the difficulty of answering that question. One of the modern players, who can easily be compared with the legends of the past, is Toni Kroos.
