Overview by IAAF   ESTADIO ULLEVI 
Four times in 1995. Edwards had exceeded 18m but on each occasion the wind was over the allowable limit for record purposes. He did manage to improve the world record to 17.98 at Salamanca on July 18. There was great anticipation to see if he could finally beat the 18m barrier. legally. in Gothenburg. Normally one has to wait for confirmation from the scoreboard to see if a world record has been set in a field event. This was not the case after the first jump in the final by the 29 year-old Briton. His hop. skip and jump took him to a place in the sand further than the end of the yellow marker board. which itself was longer than 18m. The wind was legal and the distance 18.16. a world record by a handsome margin. There was room for improvement; Edwards had a few centimetres to spare on take-off and lost a few more in the sand. His second attempt was better. and clearly even further. It was 18.29 or a quarter of an inch further than 60 feet. No-one else had ever set consecutive world triple jump records in the same series; Edwards was the first man to set three world records in one season. The contest for the silver and bronze was between Wellman. Romain and Quesada.
 The Dominican held second place with 17.59w until the cut. then was displaced by the Bermudan and his 17.62w in round 4. Quesada was possibly further in the fifth but fouled. The Cuban finished with 17.59w. but lost the bronze to Romain on their next best jumps. 17.36 to 17.19. Edwards’s only other effort was 17.49 in the fifth. “If I never come within half a metre again. I’ll have no complaints.” said Edwards. Biomechanical analysis of his record jumps 178 DOHA 2019  PAST RESULTS/WORLD CHAMPS MEN’S TJ showed that the 18.16 comprised thirds of 6.12. 5.19 and 6.85. The 18.29 was made up of a 6.05 hop. 5.22 step and 7.02 jump. The analysis showed that the Briton was significantly faster than other finalists in his last strides. achieved a near-ideal angle of take-off. and maintained superior velocity throughout the three phases of the triple jump. It should be noted that those phase measurements have since been questioned by other studies which estimate that the total of Edwards’s first two sections in his record jumps were not 11.31 and 11.27. but 11.54 and 11.60. Toe-to-board gap for the two records were estimated to be 13cm. meaning the gross distances would have been 18.29 and 18.42.

These are the official results of the Men's Triple Jump event at the 1995 IAAF World Championships in Gothenburg. Sweden. There were a total number of 44 participating athletes. with two qualifying groups and the final held on Monday August 7. 1995.

Almost three weeks before this championship. Jonathan Edwards had just marginally improved upon Willie Banks' ten year old world record (17.97m). by jumping 17.98m in Salamanca. In the preliminary round he was not even the #1 qualifier. edged out by Jérôme Romain. On his first trip down the runway in the final. Edwards became the first athlete in the world to jump further than 18 metres without wind assistance. registering a world record jump of 18.16 m. In his second jump. he jumped even further. setting a new world record of 18.29 m (60 ft 0 in). the first jump one 60 feet and a .31 m (1 ft 0 in) improvement over his previous world record. 67 cm further than silver medal winner Brian Wellman. It took more than 20 years for Christian Taylor to become the first man to jump beyond Edwards' first record.
