Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. George Avery (George Gordon Avery; February 11, 1925 in Moree, New South Wales - September 22, 2006 in Woonona, New South Wales) was an Australian athlete who mainly competed in the men's triple jump event. He competed for Australia in the 1948 Summer Olympics held in London, Great Britain in the triple jump where he won the silver medal. The triple jump (sometimes referred to as the hop, step and jump or the hop, skip and jump) is a track and field sport, similar to the long jump, but involving a "hop, bound and jump" routine, whereby the competitor runs down the track and performs a hop, a bound and then a jump into the sand pit.show more
