The thirteenth event of Marble League 2020 was held on the 9th August 2020, featuring the thirteenth event, High Jump.

Event

The official High Jump pictogram for Marble League 2020, designed by the JMRC.

The High Jump event returns similar to the High Jump held during Marble League 2016. The height of the bar that the teams must jump over is raised by 5 mm if a marble succeeds to jump over it. However, if they fail to make their way over the bar, their team can try again, but if the marble can't get over the bar again, they are out. The Marble who jumps the highest wins.

Results

O The team successfully jumped over the bar

on their first attempt.

XO The team missed their first attempt at the

specified height, but succeeded on the second.

XX The team missed two consecutive jumps at the

specified height, and thus were eliminated from the event.

OUT The team did not attempt a jump at the specified

height as they were already eliminated from the event.

Trivia

  • After the event, $5,000 was donated to St. Louis Area Food Bank in the name of the O'rangers, the gold medalists in the event.
  • Due to the O'rangers getting a gold in this event, the following teams have been mathematically eliminated from winning the Marble League: Oceanics, Bumblebees, Green Ducks, Balls of Chaos, Thunderbolts and the Hornets.
    • Worse still, even though Mellow Yellow obtained a bronze, due to them being 81 points off from 3rd place Minty Maniacs, they were the first team to be confirmed in the Marble League 2021 Qualifiers.
  • The highest result in the final table in the video for all teams except the O'rangers shows the height they failed to jump rather than their highest jump.
  • This was the first High Jump event in a Marble League since the 2017 edition. And curiously, 2 teams (and even the same individual team members) managed a place in the podium both times: Mandarin from the O'rangers got gold this year and silver in 2017, and Yellah from Mellow Yellow was 1st in 2017 and 3rd in 2020.
