Long jump: 1. Run as fast as you can! Sprint like your life depends on it! Without speed, you won't have strength in your jump, and the jump will not turn out... 2. Don't stop, then jump! If you sprint down, then stop at the beginning of the pit, then jump, there would be no point of running in the first place. You need to keep it smooth, so that when you come to the pit you can place your foot down like you were about to run another stride, but then jump. 3. You have to have strength in your jump. Use your strong foot, the foot you would use to kick a soccer ball. Make sure you use all your strength that is in your leg. Jump forward, not up. You need to have lots of thrust to make it strong. 4. Use your arms. It may sound odd, but if you use your arms you will go farther, you'll have more thrust. Pump them as if you were running in the air. Doing that with your legs can help, too. 5. Fall forward, not back. If you have to fall, make sure your falling forward. Falling back will just take away lots of length off your good jump. 6. Practice, practice, practice! The more practicing you do, the better you get. I know it sounds lame, but it's true! Triple Jump: Use the exact same strategies that are up there, except with the hop, skip, jump. Practice them so you can put it together smoothly. I'm good at triple jump, and I made it to the track finals for long jump. These are the strategies I use. I hope they help you! Good luck!

No. In triple jump you jump 3 times and only once in long jump. But the object is the same.
