Play Long Jump Games
The triple jump was previously known as the hop, step and jump, which describes the actions of the competitor. The athlete runs down a runway until he reaches a designated mark where the jump is measured. The first landing is done with the takeoff foot. The next phase is a step, landing on the opposite foot, and is followed by the jump, into a sandfilled box, as in the long jump.Except for the placement of the takeoff board, the same facilities are used for triple jump as for the long jump. It is recommended that the takeoff board is not less than 13m for men and 11m for women from the nearer end of the landing area. For other competitions, this distance is appropriate for the level of competition.
