UKA Coach Building A Better Coaching Environment


Aston Moore: LTAD of Jumpers (Part 2)

Moore competed at the 1976 Montreal Olympics but failed to progress past the qualifying rounds. He won a bronze medal at the Commonwealth Games on two occasions; first in 1978 with a jump of 16.69 metres, then in 1982 with a wind-assisted 16.76 m. He also won a bronze medal with a jump of 16.73 m at the 1981 European Indoor Championships, finishing third behind Shamil Abbyasov and Klaus Kübler. In addition, over the course of his career he won three AAA championships in triple jump.

After his retirement from athletics Moore focused on coaching triple jump to younger generations. He has helped train Ashia Hansen, current UK and former world record holder for indoor triple jump, and Phillips Idowu, an Olympic silver medallist. His son Jonathan Moore won the gold medal for triple jump at the 2001 World Youth Championships.
