Anna Biryukova


Anna Biryukova (Russian: Анна Бирюкова; given birth to Sept 27, 1967 in Yekaterinburg, Sverdlovsk) is usually a retired woman triple jumper from Russia. In 1993 Biryukova received a precious metal medal in the Globe Championships by jumping 15.09 metres, a fresh world record. She apparently believed she experienced the ability of jumping 16 metres, however in 1994 she didn’t reach the 15 metre tag once, although she do become European champ that time of year. In 1995 she starred in the Globe Championships, and she nearly reached old levels by jumping 15.08 metres. Women’s triple leap had progressed, nevertheless, and she just handled a bronze medal behind Iva Prandzheva (15.15m) and Inessa Kravets, who jumped a global record of 15.50 metres which still stands. Anna Biryukova also competed in long leap every once in awhile, and her personal best is 6.64 metres.
