2019 World Championships in Athletics for Women: Long Jump

Mechanism:

The participants run along a runway and jump as far as they can into a sandpit from a wooden take-off board 8in wide. The distance traveled by the participant, from the board edge to the closest indentation in the finely ground sand to it, is then measured.

A foul is committed, if the participants steps beyond the board. No distance is recorded in such situation.

Most championship events allow 6 jumps per athlete, although usually those with the shorter score are often disqualified after 3 attempts. If there is a tie between two jumpers, then the one with the next best score is declared the winner.
