I noticed that. And 46 ft on his first jump!! He must have really lost it mid-flight. We'll see what happens next year. Davis didn't even qualify for the final. Last year I felt Olsson was going to be the heir apparent.

I'm not American Conway but you guy's have some potential World beaters in the Men's Triple Jump such as Kenta Bell,Tim Rusan & Wlater Davis.

Over in the UK we can prehpas carry on our depth in the sport which was brought to us buy Keith Connor and Jonathan Edwards, as we have the likes of Phillips Idowu(CG Silver last year, 2nd longest jump of the year in 2002, he has jumped 17.68m and 17.54m) Larry Achike(if he ever finds his best from again! He was 5th in the Sydney OG in 2000, he has 17.31w and 17.30m) then we have the youngster Jonathan Moore(He is only 19 or 20 I believe. He has jumped 16.20m+ several times and has plenty of time to mature in both the Long and Triple Jumps. As he has jumped a British Junior Long Jump of 8.03m last year when coming 3rd bheind Chris Tomlinson(8.17m in that competiton) and Nathan Morgan(8.11w in that competition) So has a future in the event too)
and many others which have yet to be discovered.
