Standing triple jump is an athletics event. As with conventional triple jump the event involves three phases, but in this event there is no approach run.
The first phase is a hop from a stand still, which requires the athlete to take-off from a two-footed stand, split in mid air, and land on the preferred foot. The next phase is a long stretched step, landing on the opposite foot. The last phase is the jump, where the athlete lands on both feet. The winner is the competitor who achieves the longest distance on one of the 3 or 6 attempts.
Competitions in standing triple jump are not very common today, but the event was included in the 1900 and 1904 Summer Olympics.
