RE: Triple jump experts, how do you explain the huge gains by American record holder Tori Franklin who has PRd by 4 + feet?
I am no expert but competed as a junior in the TJ and have managed a T&F team - now an avid Athletics fan and ageing runner. Although as cynical as most about the sport - I agree with others - if this was 5000m runner - then hmmmm ... however the TJ is such a technical event I can easily see how a winter of conditioning, changes in technique, perhaps injury free winter .. could all come together in a perfect storm with a massive improvement. So unless there is some other compelling evidence (as lets face it - the question is about doping ??) such as association with a known dodgy agent or coach, then I will applaud her success and look forward to watching her compete at the next major champs.
