4 feet means 120 cm. I recently jumped on a platform which is 108(my max) cm high, so 120 cm is not that impressive for a professional athlete.

It means 1.2 m, and I kind of expected GSP to be able to jump at least that high.

I still think jumping out of a pool is more impressive.

Athleticism personified. You need some serious fast twitch muscle fibres to do that shit. I reckon his explosive front squats have greatly contributed to it too.

Wasn't a vertical jump measured with straight legs (while in air)?

It's already been brought up, but that's not a 'vertical leap'.

It's also not particularly impressive (although there's plenty that GSP does that is). I was able to clear cyclone fences with a leap by the time I was 20 or so (haven't tried it in a few years and my plyo training has lapsed a bit, but I like to think I could still pull it off ). Penn jumping out of the water is a much bigger feat, not that GSP was attempting to one up him here.
