Keturah Orji Breaks American, Collegiate Indoor Record For Triple Jump

Georgia's Keturah Orji broke her own American and NCAA indoor records in the triple jump on Saturday with a leap of 14.53m/47-8 at the Clemson Invitational.

She broke her own records -- sort of. The junior jumped 14.32m/46-11.75 last indoor season to win the SEC Championship and set American and collegiate records, but the American record, at least, was not ratified by USATF because she was not drug tested at the facility.

Sheila Hudson set the American indoor record of 14.23m/46-8.25 in 1995, more than 20 years ago. The collegiate indoor record is nearly as old, as Suzette Lee of LSU lept 14.25m/46-9 to set the standard in 1997.

Orji set the American outdoor record of 14.71m when she placed fourth at the Olympic Games in Rio. She wasn't shy about sharing her goal of jumping 15m this year to close out her NCAA eligibility when FloTrack spoke with her at the Bowerman Awards, where she was a finalist for the second year in a row.
