100 days out from the London Olympics, TODAY's Natalie Morales joined Olympic hopefuls in Times Square to try high jumping -- a sport she'd never attempted!
This morning, Times Square was transformed into a mini-Olympic village and TODAY's Natalie Morales joined in on the fun.
Olympic hopefuls from sports as diverse as BMX through beach volleyball showed off their talent amid the skyscrapers and bright lights of Broadway, while Natalie searched for the spring in her legs to high jump in front of the crowd.
Bear in mind, she'd never high jumped before.
Who better to give her tips than the pros? Dick Fosbury, 1968 gold-medalist and creator of the famed "Fosbury Flop," 1948 gold medalist Alice Coachman, reigning world champion and 2012 Olympic hopeful Jesse Williams, and Jeff Sibka, Paralymic high jumper all coached Natalie on how to clear that daunting bar.
Watch the video above to see if she did it, or if she followed in the footsteps of fellow TODAY anchor, Savannah Guthrie, who had a hard time clearing a hurdle on Rockefeller plaza earlier that day.
Jason Richardson, reigning world champion in hurdling and potential first-time Olympian, faces one of his most difficult tasks yet: teaching TODAY's Savannah Guthrie to hurdle.
