Where do you measure the triple jump from?

Just like the long jump, the triple jump requires that a competitor begin his or her jump from a designated line called "the board". This line is typically much farther back and the jumper performs three individual jumps in one constant movement. Did you know that if a jumper starts his/her jump before reaching the board, the jump will be measured FROM the board?
