$20,000: Later improving on his own world record, in 1989 Cuban Athlete Javier Sotomayor became the first and so far only person to break what track & field barrier?
A - 3-minute mile
B - 8-foot high jump

C - 29%
D - 13%

A - guitar
B - violin
C - piano
D - trombone
Jonathan doesn't know the answer; if it were Stradivarius he would know it was the violin. He would like to stay longer, but he's going to walk away.
