46.70/10 = 4.67 per step: 5-step = 23.35m. Considering the speed slowing you down with each step, I would say there is a flying 10-12 step approach. And still, it would be rather impressive. Did you measure it correctly? If so, good job!
Good job for sure … I know a 17.50 TJer, 2 17.3m TJers (1 of which is an olympic medalist, 2 are Commonwealth/European Champs the other all Oly finalists) a 8.5m LJer and a 8.3m LJer (One is an olympic medalist and the other a finalist) and none of them could get within 3m of this. You should give TJ a go, you could prolly jump over 18 and a half. Nice one.
I am a triple jumper…havent jumped since last year , been concentrating on training like a beast and catching the leading jumpers in my country. Only managed to jump around 16m last year with no ply’s, or jump training. and my 10bounds last year was measured at the distance stated in the first post (38m).
do you have any measurements of any of the athletes you ‘know’ for reference?
If you only had a 3-4 step approach, and managed 46.70 … perhaps check the measurement again, especially since you did 38m last year.
I mean 25m with 5-steps is achievable (but rather impressive in my book) if you have a really fast approach, and still, you will have trouble to keep the last two steps close to 5 meters. Now, to manage almost 5m per step for all 10 steps… sounds a bit peculiar.
I’m almost certain you did a mistake in counting the steps: perhaps 11 after all? Now, 46.70 with 11 steps sounds better (and still very good). It’s actually very common to make that mistake; the tenth step will be at landing, not takeoff.
