Overview by IAAF   sevilla1 
Most athletes would be happy to come away from the World Championships with any medal but for Edwards his bronze was “a complete disaster.” As he remarked, “I couldn’t envisage not winning.” After he had led the qualifiers with 17.30, taking off from behind the entire board, it was no surprise when Dimitrov opened with a personal best of 17.49 in the final. Edwards fell just a centimetre short of that in round 2 but both were overtaken in the fourth round when Friedek followed a 17.19 opener, and two big but invalid efforts, with a personal best equalling 17.59. It was the German’s third big triumph within a year, having won at the World Cup and World Indoors.
 These are the official results of the Men's triple jump event at the 1999 World Championships in Seville, Spain. There were a total number of 39 participating athletes, with the final held on Wednesday 25 August 1999.

Men Triple Jump Final

Men Triple JumpFinal Germany's Charles Michael Friedke won the closest triple jump final in World Championships with a '99 world best of 17,59. The three medallists were in an eleven-centimetre gap (in Tokyo '91 it was 16 cm.). Friedek is also the current indoor champion and jumped over 17 metres from his first attempt. Then he headed the event, but lost positions placing fourth. He made the winner jump in the fourth attempt. His second, third and fifth attempts were fouls, and he passed the sixth. Rostislav Dimitrov (BUL) took the second place with 17,49m made in his first attempt, setting the third '99 world performance. World record holder Jonathan Edwards (GBR) was only the third with 17,48, in his fourth consecutive final with four medals won. Yoelbis Quesada, the World Champion in Athens '97, made a disappointing competition placing tenth with 16,88. The same happened with the Russian Kasputin, second '99 performer, who jumped 16,89 for a ninth position.

Men's Triple Jump Qualification

All the favourites in this event qualified to the final. However, only six men achieved the qualification standard of 17.00 metres. In group B, the world record holder, Jonathan Edwards (GBR), who has had a foot injury this year, had to wait for his second attempt (17.28) to qualify automatically.This group also included the Bulgarian Dimitrov, who reached the best mark of this qualification with 17.30, which he jumped on his first attempt. In group A, the defending champion Cuba's Yoelbi Quesada, qualified but was very far from his best marks and had to be satisfied with the 16.88 that he achieved on his final attempt. A tough time for the Russian Denis Kapustin, silver medallist at the Europeans in Budapest and third in the world year rankings, he came second to last in his group with 16.73. One of the greatest surprises was the non-qualification of the Cuban Yoel Garcia, world indoor champion in Paris'97, who only achieved 16.56. The same occurred with Brian Wellman, from Bermudas, world indoor champion in 1995 and was second in 1995.
