I have well and truly caught the bug for researching all-round talents.

After compiling the list of the fastest men’s and women’s all-round sprinters, I set about doing the same for jumpers. Well, ‘pole-less’ jumpers, as I’m not including the pole vault. Otherwise it would be a short list indeed.

As was the case with the other list, all of the points totals are based on the IAAF scoring tables. Where appropriate, altitude marks have been included, as have indoor marks, but wind-assisted marks do not count. Nor do any performances set under the influence of drugs.

Listed below are the top 40 men and women. I may well have missed a few, so if you can spot any ommissions or errors, please do get in touch or leave a comment below.

Each of the spreadsheets I’ve compiled cover about 80 athletes, and there were a few notable athletes who missed out on making the top 40. They include Teddy Tamgho (3134 points), Dalton Grant (3100), Allen Johnson (3068), Steve Smith (3046) and Stefan Holm (2873). Missing out on the women’s list were Larisa Nikitina (3189), Naide Gomes (3171), Ruth Beitia (3150), Kelly Sotherton (3115), Irina Privalova (3079) and Kajsa Bergqvist (3021).

Lists last updated 23 January 2016.

    What about James Jenkins in the mix. 2.16 HIGH JUMP. 16.50i/16.79w Triple Jump, 7.45 Long Jump. You left him out.

    Re: James Jenkins – he is on my master spreadsheet, but his score of 3140 isn’t enough to make the top 40.

    Bryan McBride 2.30, 7.79i, 15.66.
