Wilt Chamberlain

I was scrounging around Google for various reasons and stumbled across some information on Wilt Chamberlain in high school. I knew he was a quarter-miler (that's right--7'1" and a freaking quarter-miler), but take a look at this:
At Overbrook High School in Philly, he high jumped 6 feet, 6 inches, ran the 440 in 49.0 seconds and the 880 in 1:58.3, put the shot 53 feet, 4 inches, and broad jumped 22 feet.

Oh, and in high school he scored 74, 78 and 90 points--in consecutive games.

Wilt Chamberlain...beamed to us from the distant future.
