Here is an event that really tests one's leg strength and ability to remain balanced throughout.
The triple jump is much more difficult than meets the eye. It requires the strength to jump on each leg and gain more than 50 percent of one's long-jump distance with each bound.
So, if an athlete long jumps 24 feet, he or she must be able to bound more than 12 feet. With his speed alone though, Bolt would surely top 24 or even 25 feet in the long jump, but getting even 12 feet per bound on the triple jump wouldn't even mark in the Olympics.
Fortunately, Bolt's quick explosion from the start and strength to push off his feet from sprinting are so fast that he would transition well into the triple jump. He would certainly do better than the javelin throw, but not well enough to make the Olympic finals.
After all, to qualify for the finals at the Beijing Games, 17.11 meters (56 feet, one inch) was the shortest mark.
Projection: 16.5 meters (54'1"), one foul
