But then, in the hospital operating theatre to where he had been rapidly dispatched, the doctors tried one last thing. Under an electrical stimulus, fully 76 minutes after it stopped, his heart burst back into a beat. As inexplicably as it had stopped, it started again.

  307. 307. Some sports moments simply defy all reasonable comprehension—Mickey Mantle blasting a 565-foot home run, Secretariat winning the 1973 Belmont Stakes by 31 lengths, and Tiger Woods winning the U.S. Open by 15 strokes. But the feat that may top them all came in the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City. X, a 22-year-old New York native, barely qualified for the Olympic long jump finals after fouling in two of his qualifying runs. Fortunately, he did. The following day in the finals, X took off down the runway in the thin air of Mexico City. After exactly 19 loping strides, he hit the board perfectly, stretched out with his legs and flew through the air like no one ever had. And finally, he hit the sand in the pit below.
  308. 308. There was no doubt that he had broken the world record, the only question was by how much. X was so excited and emotionally drained that doctors claim he suffered a "cataplectic seizure." Some critics devalued the jump, claiming the rarified air and the wind of 2.0 meters per second was more responsible for the record. But all the other competitors jumped in the same elements and strangely, none of them came close. The defending Olympic champion Lynn Davies told X, "You have destroyed this e e t.” Such as his perfor a ce that superlati e performances like that came to be called as Y after his name in future.
