The triple jump has its origins in the ancient Olympic Games and has been a modern Olympics event since the Games' inception in 1896. The current male and female world record holders are Jonathan Edwards of Great Britain, with a jump of 18.29 meters, and Inessa Kravets of Ukraine, with a jump of 15.50 meters. Both records were set during 1995 World Championships in Gothenburg.
