JUMPS: LONG JUMP, TRIPLE JUMP, HIGH JUMP, POLE VAULT
LONG JUMP – The long jump is a track and field event in which athletes combine speed, strength, and agility to leap as far as possible from a take-off point.
TRIPLE JUMP – The triple jump, sometimes referred to as the hop, step and jump or the hop, skip and jump, is a track and field event. As a group, the two events are referred to as the “horizontal jumps”.
HIGH JUMP – The high jump is a track and field event in which competitors must jump unaided over a horizontal bar placed at measured heights without dislodging it. The discipline is, alongside the pole vault, one of two vertical clearance events to feature on the Olympics athletics programme.
POLE VAULT – Pole vaulting is a track and field event in which a person uses a long flexible pole as an aid to jump over a bar. It is typically classified as one of the four major jumping events in athletics, alongside the high jump, long jump, and triple jump.
