Officiating Triple Jump
Triple Jump is only contested by U11 to U17 athletes. The conduct of the event is the same as that of Long Jump. The take-off mat is positioned at whole metre distances in front of the pit.
The Triple Jump consists of a hop, step and jump. It is defined as “The hop shall be made so that the competitor lands first upon the same foot as that from which he/she has taken off; in the step he/she shall land on the other foot from which the jump is performed”.
