The data consist of 28 cases: 4 jumps of the 7 finalists, and 4 variables: Yat, Yee, Sam measurements in meters, and finalist – 1 to 7.

Pogo-Jumps is similar to the triple jump except that the competitor is mounted on a pogo-stik. After a pogo-up towards the starting board the total jump distance achieved in three consecutive bounces, known as the yat, yee and sam, is recorded.
