The American men's record is held by Kenny Harrison who jumped 18.09 meters at the 1996 Summer Olympics.
The American women's record is held by Tiombe Hurd who jumped 14.45 meters at a meet in Sacramento, California in 2004.
Note: Harrison's current American Record is also the Olympic Record.
to be honest there probably isn't one because that is quite a young age. even when i was doing triple jump at the age of 14 i was considered quite young to do it since it puts a lot of pressure on the body when it is still quite undeveloped.
Great Britain's Jonathan Edwards is the current men's world record holder in the triple jump. His jump of 18.29 metres (meters) in 1995 is the current world record.
He also has a jump of 18.43 metres (meters) which was not in the record book because of a strong tailwind.
Ukraine's Inessa Kravets is the current women's world record holder in the triple jump. Her jump of 15.50 metres (meters) in 1995 is the current world record.
France's Teddy Tamgho is the current men's indoor world record holder in the triple jump. His jump of 17.90 metres (meters) in 2010 is the current indoor world record.
Russia's Tatyana Lebedeva is the current women's indoor world record holder in the triple jump. Her jump of 15.38 metres (meters) in 2004 is the current indoor world record.
400 metres once around the whole thing
I am 14 ( 8th grade) and I started my first track season this year. My first jump was 28 feet. Two weaks later i was jumping 36 feet. I couldn't do that in a mete though i jumped 33.6 in my last meet. so I think that 30 or 32 is average because I was mostly coming in second in 3 metes. So keap trying and training u will jump over that
A good, rather than typical, distance for a 13 year old boy is 10.50-11.00m. About 1.50m less for a 13 year old girl.
i am 13 i can jump at average 13-13.50metres eachn time i jump for the town team though
Hop, step then jump.
The hop involves landing on the same foot that was used for take-off, the step lands on the opposite foot and the jump finishes in the sandpit (normally a two-footed landing).
of all time, maybe around 43 feet. that's a guess
Detailed rules differ by state, but here are some general rules. The thrower is forbidden from stepping out of the circle until the official gives him clearance. Some areas allow the thrower to step ON the line as long as he is not OVER the line, but in many areas stepping on the line disqualifies the thrower. The discus must land within the two lines that form the throwing sector. If it lands outside of the line, it is called a scratch-aka it doesn't count. This is another area where the rules change depending on where you are- in some places the throw will count if the disc lands on the line; in other places that throw would be a scratch.
The triple jump , sometimes referred to as the hop, skip and jump is a track and field sport, similar to the long jump. The competitor runs down the track and performs a hop, a bound and then a jump into the sand pit. The triple jump was inspired by the ancient OlympicGames and has been a modern Olympics event since the Games' inception in 1896.According to IAAU rules, "the hop shall be made so that an athlete lands first on the same foot as that from which he has taken off; in the step he shall land on the other foot, from which, subsequently, the jump is performed." The current male and female world record holders are Jonathan Edwards of Great Britain, with a jump of 18.29 m (60 ft 0 in), and InessKravetz of Ukraine, with a jump of 15.50 m (50 ft 10 in). Both records were set during 1995 World Championships in Gothenburg.
Hop, skip and a jump or hop, step, and a jump
mainly cardiovascular endurance, then depending on the distance, muscular endurance
Long jump: 1. Run as fast as you can! Sprint like your life depends on it! Without speed, you won't have strength in your jump, and the jump will not turn out... 2. Don't stop, then jump! If you sprint down, then stop at the beginning of the pit, then jump, there would be no point of running in the first place. You need to keep it smooth, so that when you come to the pit you can place your foot down like you were about to run another stride, but then jump. 3. You have to have strength in your jump. Use your strong foot, the foot you would use to kick a soccer ball. Make sure you use all your strength that is in your leg. Jump forward, not up. You need to have lots of thrust to make it strong. 4. Use your arms. It may sound odd, but if you use your arms you will go farther, you'll have more thrust. Pump them as if you were running in the air. Doing that with your legs can help, too. 5. Fall forward, not back. If you have to fall, make sure your falling forward. Falling back will just take away lots of length off your good jump. 6. Practice, practice, practice! The more practicing you do, the better you get. I know it sounds lame, but it's true! Triple Jump: Use the exact same strategies that are up there, except with the hop, skip, jump. Practice them so you can put it together smoothly. I'm good at triple jump, and I made it to the track finals for long jump. These are the strategies I use. I hope they help you! Good luck!
there is not much equipment required for high jump. All that is needed is one mat, one pole, and two standard. The two standards hold up the pole and the mat sits behind the standards.
I am a college track and feild athlete, specializing in sprints and jumps. Each individual jumper should determine their stlye of jumping. The style will depend on the comfort of the jumper and how well he/she can execute the technique during practice.
there are two common techniques for arm use during triple jump:
1. Double-arm action: prefered for faster jumpers who can accumulate more speed as they approach the board. The reason for this is because the double arm motion will slow you down as you prepare to approach the board.
2. Single-arm action: suggested for a slower jumper who can not accumulate as much speed. It will transfer all of the jumpers speed into the first phase of the jump.
no, jumping and leaping are not he same thing. jumping can be going in the air in place and leaping in going up in the air but moving from point a to point b.
While you jump you go higher than when you leap, but when you leap you cover more distance than when you jump.
As an 18 year old, my PR was 39' 1'', which was decent but definitely not amazing. I would say anything over 40' can be considered "good." ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ To medal in a national championships for under 20s a distance of 14.50m-16.00m is likely to be needed.
There is a field referee that is responsible for all field events. The specific triple jump officials are merely called officials.
Just like the long jump, the triple jump requires that a competitor begin his or her jump from a designated line called "the board". This line is typically much farther back and the jumper performs three individual jumps in one constant movement.
Did you know that if a jumper starts his/her jump before reaching the board, the jump will be measured FROM the board?
That is the nickname for the triple jump.
You run up to the board, then you hop of your desired leg, then from the hop, you take a step, then you jump. You can choose how close you want the take off board to be to the sand. Normally, boards are either 7, 9, 11 or 13 metres away from the sand. Professionals always go off the 13m board, as that is where it is placed under many championship rules. For the hop, you must land on the foot from which you took off, and for the step, you must land on the other foot. You must take off from within the lane. You must not walk back through the sand after the jump. The jump is measured from the nearest break in the landing area made by any part of your body.
you can work on your calf muscles and you hops
It is possible to use dirt, but not recommended. Sand is preferably used because when you land on it there is a lot of "give" to it to help absorb shock so it is better on your joints. It is less likely to pack down like dirt would do, which causes a harder surface. It would not be good for your knees.
The first documentation of the triple jump was in 1794 with a competition at Islington cricket ground. It was thought that the birthplace of the triple jump was the Lowlands of Scotland, but the Lowlands first documented evidence only dates back to 1797.
Do a standing hop, step, and jump as many times as you can.
