Jordan Scott shatters ACC and Virginia University Triple Jump records

Jermaine Wright
NCAA Indoors 2019


Jamaican jumper Jordan Scott leaped into the Cavalier track and field record book with a head-turning performance at the Clemson Tiger Paw meet a short while ago.

The University of Virginia junior got it right from the jump, breaking the UVA record with his very first attempt (16.87m) on the day. Three jumps later, he would top the performance with a mark of 16.90m to finish the day in second place.

The mark ranks second in the NCAA and fifth in the world this season.

It was a massive improvement on his previous best of 16.43m set just two weeks ago in a season-opening win at the Dr. Sander Columbia Challenge in New York.

The event was won by Texas A&M University’s Tahar Triki who snatched the victory on his final attempt while Scott, satisfied with his huge effort, passed on his final two attempts.
