Tori Franklin Claims American Record In The Triple Jump

When Tori Franklin upped her lifetime best to 46-5¼ (14.15) to win the USATF Indoor title in February, who would have thought that just 3 months later that mark would only be No. 9 on her personal all-time list?

The 25-year-old Michigan State alum went wild on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe on Saturday, cranking out a spectacular series that went like this: 47-8½/14.54 PR, 48-8¼/14.84 AR, 48‑6/14.78, 47-9/14.57, foul, 47-8½/14.54.

Her dominance of the all-time U.S. list was scaled back slightly on Sunday when former AR holder Keturah Orji had a big jump at the SEC, but as the weekend wraps up, we find Franklin with all-time U.S. performances 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 11 & 18.

Here’s the all-time list of legal-wind 47-plus performances by American women (Orji leads Franklin 8 to 7 in entries on the list):
