A total of 48 jumpers that have jumped 50 cm or more above own height

Comments about the list above
It always difficult to find out the exact height, or "tallness", of each and every jumper - the bulgarian Georgi Dakov for instance is 184 cm in some list and 196 cm in others.
So I can´t say that the list above is 100% correct - but It's at least something to start working from.
