The British Indoor Track and Field championships are this weekend. And that probably means absolutely nothing to most of us here in the States. But that might change after you watch the slow-motion video of Katarina Johnson-Thompson’s record high jump from last year. Clearing 1.96 meters (just over 6-feet, 5 inches) -- an indoor British record -- has never looked so epic.

Is anyone else in favor of making every high-jump competition air on television in slow motion? If it were set to the right music it could be more dramatic than a Nicholas Sparks movie.

See something entertaining on social media that you think deserves to be shared? Let me know on Twitter, @darcymaine_espn.
