My friends and I are playing D&D 4 now, and for the first time someone decided to roll a Goliath character. Now "Powerful Athlete" racial feature states that

When you make an Athletics check to jump or climb, roll twice and use either result

But since we all are not native English speakers we got confused about what "either" means in that context. Should I use both rolls or just pick one that is higher?

You choose the one you want

This simply means you roll two times and then choose the one you prefer, which is probably the higher result.

For example if you roll a "14" and a "7", the result you want is probably "14".
