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”.
