Leap into the Unknown


First of all, a very warm welcome to iTripleJump – a new site dedicated to all things related to (in my most biased opinion) the greatest Track & Field event of them all … the Hop, Step & Jump … Dreisprung … Triple Salto … Triple Saut … the Triple Jump! (Or as legendary BBC commentator Ron Pickering aptly described it – “bang, bang, BANG!”)

Whether you are a fellow jumper, a coach, an athletics fan, or a curious website surfer, I hope you find this website and its contents of interest to you. I aim to bring you latest news of Triple Jump results, previews of events, clips and profiles of Triple jump legends over the years, and my own memories and thoughts about competing in the event for over 35 years.

Accompanying clips and shorter news pieces are also given on my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/itriplejump. You can also find me on Twitter at https://twitter.com/iTripleJumpcouk under the username @iTripleJumpcouk.


If you have any thoughts about other features, athletes or coaches you’d like to see here, or any feedback about the site, then please contact me using the “Reply” box on the “About” page, or alternativly via facebook using the “message” facility or on Twitter. I hope the site can grow into the resource that Triple Jump fans want to see – and not just the confused ramblings of an aging jumper with too much time on his hands!

To end my first leap into the worldwide web I’ll leave you with a great YouTube clip from Paul Beznis that fully demonstrates the athletism and beauty of this great event:
