Triple Jump Betting

The Triple Jump is one of the most popular field events at the Olympics and there is sure to be plenty of betting interest, particularly from the British. The event is similar to the long jump as athletes jump as far as they can into a sand pit, although the triple jump involves the 'hope, skip and jump' technique, where jumpers perform a hop and a skip (or bound) before jumping into the pit. British interest in this particular event has been well established as Jonathan Edwards set a world record distance of 18.29m during the 1995 World Championships in Gothenburg.

The triple jump has been part of the men's Olympics since the inaugural games in 1896 and Edwards is the current world record holder thanks to his 18.29 jump in 1995. The women's world record was also set at the 1995 World Championships in Gothenburg as Ukrainian Inessa Kravets recorded a jump of 15.5m, although the triple jump has only been an Olympic event for women since the Atlanta games in 1996.
