Paralympian High Jumper Jordan Lee doesn't wear a cape.

He doesn't need one.

If you look at his achievements already and he's only just turned 21 - you will see that this young man from Killarney is a superhero.

The best way to describe how high I can jump is the next time you park your car and you see the car park barrier set at 1 meter 95 just think that your good ol friend Jordan can jump over that!

That is insane. LOOK HOW HIGH THAT IS!!!!
