    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.

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

    Mike Powell was a decent highjumper as well. I believe he cleared like 7'2" if I recall.

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

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

    Well, Conley over Olsson, anyway. Maybe.

    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.

    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

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

    started a topic Best Men's Jump Triplers? [split]

    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?
