But once one gains familiarity with the event it becomes evident that the Triple Jump is just a sophisticated combination of the same hopping, skipping and Jumping found on virtually any school playground. Despite its root of child-like movements, triple Jump has developed into one of the most challenging events in all of the track and field events. It demands the complex integration of speed, precision, balance, resiliency and power. Excelling in this event requires that one masters and identifies these skills. With gradual and long-term training this can be achieved.
