  • Best Men's Jump Triplers? [split]

    All this combo talk got me thinking: Who is the best lj/tj/hj of all-time?

    I have know idea but I do know that Richard Duncan, former NCAA champ at Texas and Olympian went 8.20m/16.62m/2.20+.

    Does anyone know?

    Olsson - 2.24m/7.69m/17.79m.

      Nice! I'm guessing 17.79m in the tj trumps 8.20m in the lj. :wink:

        How about the All-time Jumper? HJ - PV - LJ - TJ?

        Wasn't there a UCLA ur UWash deca guy (Sloan ??) who was a 7' - 17'er? If he TJed, he's in the running.

          The LJ/TJ double isn't exactly unusual at the highest level.

          As for the HJ/LJ/TJ triple, I'm surprised nobody's mentioned Carro yet: 1.95, 6.97 and 14.29

            Mickael Hanany is a French HJer who dabbled in the LJ/TJ and attended SMU/UTEP in the US. 2.32/7.89/16.39. Still young at 25, so some of these marks should go up.

              Mike Conley. Or Ron Livers. If anyone knows their HJ/LJ/TJ bests, I'd bet they're the best. How would it be determined? Not "Portuguese tables" or whatever, but better by multiplying them - HJ x LJ x TJ ? For what it's worth...

                Well, Conley over Olsson, anyway. Maybe.

                  Conley didn't jump high enough to top this list. Livers was a relatively poor long jumper.

                    Sloan (UCLA, now Washington State coach) was the first 7/17 combo. In '67 as I recall. Also threw a frisbee farther than anybody I ever saw.

                      Just curious: why did my post end up in the men's thread when you made the split?

                        Mike Powell was a decent highjumper as well. I believe he cleared like 7'2" if I recall.
                        If you're ever walking down the beach and you see a girl dressed in a bikini made out of seashells, and you pick her up and hold her to your ear, you can hear her scream.

                          This splitting business is getting ridiculous. The admins are getting far too split-happy and, if anything, it makes threads more difficult to follow.

                            Olsson = 2.28m/7.71m/17.79m

                              I'd already posted his corrected PBs on the other jump triplers thread (and his TJ PB is 17.83i)

                              A perfect illustration why forums can get confusing when threads get split into to many parts. I understand doing it for the MASSIVE threads that stray way off the original topic. But in this instance (splitting threads into a men's and women's version of the original) it is just ridiculous and not necessary.
