[Ray Ewry] won this event by over a foot, defending his title from Paris 1900. The standing triple jump was never again contested at the Olympic Games. Though now termed the standing triple jump, in this era the event was usually called the hop, step, and jump. However, the rules, and the techniques used, varied greatly at this time. Recent research by members of the Association of Track & Field Statisticians (ATFS), that this event was contested as three standing jumps in this competition rather than any continuous hop, step, or jump combination, as it was in 1900.
