Overview by IAAF   ESTADIO ULLEVI 
Three days after Jonathan Edwards’s exploits there was another barrier-breaking world triple jump record in Gothenburg. Kravets added a phenomenal 41 centimetres to the previous record and became the first woman to triple jump more than 50 feet. A world record attempt should have been the last thing on Kravets’s mind. The Ukrainian was in trouble after fouling her first two jumps in the final. The reason for this. she explained afterwards. was that she found the runway so fast that she had increased the length of her usual runup. She also revealed that a photo of Edwards had provided her with inspiration before her crucial third jump. Instead of a “safe” jump. Kravets bounded to a world record of 15.50! It gave her the lead by 65 centimetres. There had only been one legal 15-metre jump outdoors before the Gothenburg final. Afterwards there were five. because besides Kravets. defending champion Biryukova reached 15.08 in round 3. She was overtaken by Prandzheva. who went out to 15.18 in the fifth and 15.00 in the sixth. Kravets had a long foul in the fourth round and cleared 14.55 with her only other valid effort.

These are the official results of the Women's Triple Jump event at the 1995 IAAF World Championships in Gothenburg. Sweden. There were a total number of 32 participating athletes. with two qualifying groups and the final held on Thursday August 10. 1995.

This event was jumping in the same facility as Jonathan Edwards had set the still standing world record for men just three days earlier. Over the course of his series. Edwards had added 32 cm to Willie Banks' previous record that had stood for over a decade. The leader from the qualifying round was former world record holder Iolanda Chen. The final started uneventfully with Rodica Mateescu taking the lead with 14.44m. The second round intensified with world record holder and defending champion Anna Biryukova jumping 14.85m to take the lead and Iva Prandzheva moving into second with a 14.76m. The third round became eventful. Biryukova jumped 15.08m. within one cm of her existing world record. Meanwhile Inessa Kravets had fouled on her first two attempts. a third foul would mean she was eliminated from the competition with no mark. She adjusted her run up to be sure she would make a legal jump. Giving up almost the entire 20 cm width of the take off board. she took off at the back of the board. On three smooth. elongated steps she flew well past the 15 metre mark into the pit. The jump was measured at 15.50 m (50 ft 10 in). adding over a foot. 31 cm to the existing world record. like Edwards a Beamonesque improvement. From where she took off. the jump was closer to 15.78m.

The competition continued. In the fourth round. Inna Lasovskaya jumped 14.85m to move into third place. In the fifth round Prandzheva jumped past Lasovskaya and Biryukova with a 15.18m. at that point in time. the second best jump in history only to the world record set minutes earlier. And in the final round. Prandzheva again jumped 15.00m exactly. a jump that would still today place her as one of the top 25 jumpers in history. but only her second best jump of the day.

Kravets' mark has stood as a world record for more than two decades. Almost a year later. Kravets showed her jump was not a fluke. jumping 15.33m to win the 1996 Olympics. Prandzheva was disqualified at those Olympics for a doping violation. Kravets was unable to defend her Olympic medal in 2000 because she was suspended. for the second time in her career for a doping violation. Her Olympic result remains the fourth best jump in history. only surpassed by Tatyana Lebedeva 15.34m in 2004 and Françoise Mbango Etone 15.39m winning the 2008 Olympics the closest anyone has approached her mark from this competition.
