    Roggy also had a good triple jump.

    Donovan Kilmartin did something like 7'2" and 17'4" in high school if memory serves.

    Not sure what his javelin best was.

    The other really obvious one missing on the females is Babe Didrikson - gold medal in the javelin, silver in the high jump in 1932.

    Missing an obvious one on the female side, although it goes back over 80 years - national champion in both events for a major nation, Olympic champion in one event.

    Ethel Catherwood - 1928 Olympic high jump champion

    Canadian champ in HJ in 1928/30/31, JT in 1927/28/30/31 - JT PR only 36.17 but it was a different era.

    Re: HJ/JT combo

    Is that JT from Turchinskaya not from an older model though? (saying that her otehr PB is from the old model too, so probably should include her in the lists at all)

    Best balanced results or closest to the elite in both events: Turchinskaya 1.89 and 59.28.

    Re: HJ/JT combo

    I knew there was another former heptathlete who made the switch to JT (apart from Spotakova) but couldn't remember who. Justine Robbeson - bests of 1.78m and 63.49m - goes straight in at no.3. Also updated Blokhina's HJ PB and Turchinskaya's JT PB (both were incorrect before) which propel them up the rankings into the top four.

    Barbora Spotakova - 1.78m/72.28m = 2248
    Larisa Turchinskaya - 1.89m/59.28m = 2134
    Justine Robbeson - 1.78m/63.49m = 2078
    Tatyana Blokhina - 1.95m/52.16m = 2073
    Antonietta Di Martino - 2.03m/46.64m = 2073
    Eunice Barber - 1.93m/53.10m = 2065
    Tia Hellebaut - 2.05m/44.37m = 2056
    Caroline Kluft - 1.95m/50.96m = 2050
    Sabine Braun - 1.94m/51.59m = 2049
    Margaret Simpson - 1.85m/56.36m = 2025
    Ghada Shouaa - 1.87m/54.82m = 2021
    Tatyana Chernova - 1.87m/54.49m = 2014
    Jackie Joyner-Kersee - 1.93m/50.08m = 2007
    Lilli Schwarzkopf - 1.83m/55.25m = 1978
    Kajsa Bergqvist - 2.08m/36.46m = 1918

    Re: HJ/JT combo

    Many years ago the AAU rules book included a Triathlon: 100-meter dash, High Jump, and Javelin -- combining run, jump,throw. It was included during the late 1950s in all-comers competition at Shoreline High School stadium, north of Seattle, and I recall seeing Don Jacobs compete.

    Long ago Mr. Jacobs was listed in Track & Field News as a contributor and his results also appeared regularly in Long Distance Log. He is now age 91.
