Standing triple jump
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.
While it is no longer an official competitive event, it is still used as a training exercise.
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.
