Jasmine Moore had a most excellent weekend in Albuquerque, taking the WLs in the long and triple jumps. Jasmine also set the AR indoors in the Triple jump and the #3 all-time long jump for an American!
INDIANAPOLIS — Winning jumps double at the NCAA Indoor Championships for the second year in a row and bettering the American record in the women’s triple jump, Jasmine Moore (Gainesville, Florida/USATF Florida) earned recognition as the ninth USATF Athlete of the Week award winner for 2023.
The University of Florida junior Moore, a Tokyo Olympian and Team USATF member at last year’s World Athletics Championships in Eugene, defended her titles in the long jump and triple jump at the NCAA Division I Indoor Championships in Albuquerque with the best pair of performances in meet history, three times bettering the ratified American indoor record in the triple jump. Her winning mark of 15.12m/49-7.25 is also superior to the ratified outdoor AR and ranks her fifth on the all-time world indoor performer list.
All five of Moore’s legal marks in the triple jump were better than the existing AR, and she added a superb collegiate record in the long jump with a 7.03m/23-0.75 leap that moved her to equal third on the all-time U.S. indoor performer list. Both of her winning marks are world leaders for 2023. Moore also won the long jump/triple jump double at last year’s NCAA outdoor championships.
