    He had a 16.52, 19.82, 16.94, as well as the 17.12; that is not the hallmark of a measurement error (and I think that lonewolf can probably speak to the quality of the guys on the crew; undoubtedly higher than at a high school dual meet). Also, 2-feet in the TJ is like 9 inches for a high school LJ.

    In the occasional glimpses of the horizontal jumps, I can identify about 80% as experienced, competent Texas Relays officials, sometimes split between two pits.
    I am pretty confident this crew did not make a 2 foot measurement mistake.
    They never show measurement or side view to judge relative distances against a pit side distance marker. Apparently, they are using triangular laser measurement instead of usual rail mounted laser. I do not recognize the laser operator.

    my ultimate triple jump PR (a smalll number I won't mention) was an improvement of 19.5 inches.

    At Okla A&M, we only did HopStepJump in Oly year 1952. Practiced a couple of times, competed in one meet. Improved PB from 0 to 49'11 3/4. I told them not to stretch the tape so tight.

    Your pants are on fire! No one, not even the legendary Lonewolf, can jump 50' (ish) on their first try!!!

    As I recall it was actually on my fifth attempt in a dual meet against Univ Okla, which was also experimenting/dabbling in Hop Step Jump. Someone read you should HSJ twice your Broad Jump.. seemed reasonable. I am a right foot jumper. Tried RRL and LLR in practice, didn't seem to make much difference.
