RE: Triple jump experts, how do you explain the huge gains by American record holder Tori Franklin who has PRd by 4 + feet?

Looking at data from indoors and connecting some other dots, unfortunately, I suspect Tori's recent jumps where windy.


Yup, this is my explanation. The proof will be when she doesn’t come within a foot of that record ever again. It might sound harsh to say it, but it’s facts. She got lucky she competed at a meet with broken wind gauges. So congrats to her.

If you disagree, let me know when she jumps within a foot of her mark. I’d bet it never happens.
