MEDFORD -- Medford High School graduate and 1968 Olympic gold medalist Dick Fosbury was elected to the National High School Hall of Fame as part of the 2018 class, the National Federation of State High Schools Association announced Thursday.


Fosbury revolutionized the high jump by inventing his own twisting way of jumping over the bar, now known as the "Fosbury Flop". He perfected the technique on the way to winning the gold medal in the high jump in the 1968 Mexico City Olympics.

The induction ceremony will take place July 2 in Chicago.
