A athlete in good physical condition can land on the ground at a speed of 12m/s without injury , calculate the max height from which the athlete can jump without injury, assuming the takeoff speed is zero

The velocity is acquired after falling a distance H given by
gH = Vmax^2/2
H = Vmax^2/(2g) = 7.35 meters
