Triple Jump

Triple Jump is probably the most demanding or the jumping events in terms of stress on the joints and injury risk. Correct technique and training is important with the jumper aiming to make each of the three phases equal rather than a long hop, short step and long jump as many beginners end up doing.

Triple jump or 'hop, stop and jump' can be broken down into three phases; the approach, take off, and landing. Here we explain the main points to remember and work on for each stage of the jump.
