The Men's Triple Jump event at the 2000 Summer Olympics as part of the athletics program was held at the Olympic Stadium.

The triple jump has been ever present since the beginning of the modern Olympic Games in 1896.

The top twelve athletes from the three jumps in qualifying progressed through to the final where the qualifying distances are scrapped and they start afresh with another three jumps. After these the top eight athletes carry their record forward and then have a further three attempts to decide the gold medalist.
