For clarity sake, I believe Ochai and Kenny’s numbers were for standing vertical not running start.

It was their maximum vertical that was reported. For reference here are both numbers

Standing vertical | Maximum vertical (differential from standing)

Ochai Agbaji: 32” | 41.5” (+9.5”)

Kenny Gregory: 39.5” | 45.5” (+6”)

Keon Johnson: 41.5” | 48” (+6.5”)

For reference, distance runners and sprinters are commonly sub 5%. I think I tested at 3.5 when I was 5 lbs overweight, or 2% at competition weight, and I was definitely not elite.
