Bill Gates Shows CBS That White Men CAN Jump


In a video that has recently resurfaced over the internet, former Microsoft chief executive and current chairman, Bill Gates, shows that if all else had failed, he could have become a decent athlete; perhaps a high jumper.  

The video is from 1994 and shows Gates springing over a chair with a fairly high back from a standing position. Not bad for someone who was 39 at the time this footage was shot. The former Microsoft CEO was appearing in an interview on CBS television when he accomplished this feat.

Whether or not a great athlete was lost to the world will never be known. However, the fact that he didn’t pursue any possible athletic ambitions certainly made life better for the tech world.
