The men's triple jump at the 2013 World Championships in Athletics was held at the Luzhniki Stadium on 16–18 August.[1]

Qualifying three triple jumpers to the final, including top qualifier Teddy Tamgho, the No. 3 jumper of all time coming back from injury, No. 2 qualifier Yoann Rapinier and Gaëtan Saku Bafuanga Baya who squeaked in on a tie breaker, France looks to be the new triple jump power.

The first round revealed what would be the final order of finish for the first four jumpers, but not the final distances. Tamgho's first round jump of 17.65 m (57 ft 1034 in) took the lead. In the second round Pedro Pablo Pichardo took the lead, putting one out to 17.68 m (58 ft 0 in), just one centimeter short of his world lead. Will Claye bounced his best jump in the third round, 17.52 m (57 ft 534 in). In the fourth round Tamgho equalled Pichardo with a 17.68 m (58 ft 0 in), though with the earlier 17.65 m (57 ft 1034 in) he held the tiebreaker. With two more rounds, would it be enough? Pichardo's 17.52 m (57 ft 534 in) in the fifth round was long but meaningless. In the final round, defending champion and reigning Olympic champion Christian Taylor made his best effort to get on the medal stand, but 17.20 m (56 ft 5 in) was only good enough for fourth place. With Pichardo holding the last attempt, Tamgho had to make sure. His 18.04 m (59 ft 2 in) world leader and personal best left no doubt. It increased his standing as the third best performer ever and moved him up as the third member of the 18-meter club. Pichardo's 16.98 m (55 ft 812 in) couldn't compete with that.
