NEWS FLASH – Lebedeva equals, breaks and then increases the World Triple Jump record
Saturday 6 March 2004Budapest, Hungary – In the women’s Triple Jump Final at the 10th IAAF World Indoor Championships in Athletics, Russia’s Tatyana Lebedeva the double World outdoor champion opened her gold medal campaign with a 15.16m jump which equalled the current World indoor record of Britain’s Ashia Hansen that was set in 1998.

Then in the following round, the 27 year-old Russian blasted down the runway to extend her competition best to 15.25m, a World indoor record outright.

After two strategic and understandable passes in rounds three and five, and a 15.15 leap in round four, Lebedeva returned to the runway for one last attempt in the sixth and final round and did the seemingly impossible, increasing the record once more to 15.36m.

Lebedeva's previous indoor best was 15.00m (2001) and her current outdoor PB is 15.32 (2000).

This morning she also qualified for tomorrow's Long Jump Final with a leap of 6.78m.

For breaking the old mark Lebedeva will receive a World record bonus of US$50,000.



Yelena Asinbayeva just cleared 4.86m to lead in the Pole Vault, another WR :bounce: :bounce:

Natalya Nazarova won the 400m in a Russian 1-2 :bounce: :worship:

Triple Jump record is getting old, though. Inessa Kravets, 15.50 from 1995. Was a big improvement on the gold record but didn't think it would last 21 years. Men's record is of course just as old.

Pressure of the final getting to the players already. Quite a few girls didn't clear 1.88m on the first try.
