James Beckford was a superb jumper in both disciplinesHaving been an avid follower of both the Long Jump and Triple Jump (these were my personal disciplines of choice as an athlete too!), I set about working out who has been the ultimate exponent of both events... here are the results. All marks are obtained from IAAF all-time lists and athlete biographies.

Note that the stats shown below take each athlete's best ever jump, whether achieved indoors or out. If someone has been omitted or there is an error here, please let me know and I'll amend as appropriate!
