Thanks for the updates.
I looked up Kynard and Zhang Guowei (the Chinese indoor record holder) and there both really young, both 22. Prs are 2.33 and 2.32 respectively.
At what age do high jumpers typically peak?
Kynard's PR is 2.37 or .38... he's only the Oly silver medalist.
The age depends on the training. If you're a Russian that gets the crud beat out of you by your coach, 25-27 is probably average. If you're an American, it can be past that. Look at Jamie Nieto (same coach as Kynard and Williams)... he made his 2nd team in 2012 at 34 or 35.
