Overview by IAAF   sevilla1 
Few athletes have risen quite so fast from obscurity to world champion as Tsiamita. In 1998 she improved drastically from a best of 13.27 to 14.23, placing ninth in the European Championships. Prior to Seville in 1999 she progressed to 14.94. In the qualifying round the 27 year-old Greek, powerful but technically ragged, jumped fully 60cm more than anyone else with a national record of 15.07, and she confirmed her supremacy in the final. She opened with 14.88 and that was that. Nobody else could jump further than 14.61. Lebedyeva, who had shared top place on the world year list beforehand, was in tears afterwards as she placed fourth behind Aldama and Vasdhéki, the Cuban winning silver ahead of the other Greek on countback. Also distraught was World Indoor Champion Hansen, who followed two fouls with a despairing effort from a vast distance behind the board. An even sadder sight was world record holder Kravets, 22nd out of 25 in the qualifying with a dismal 13.49.
 These are the official results of the Women's Triple Jump event at the 1999 World Championships in Seville, Spain. There were a total number of 26 participating athletes, with the final held on Tuesday 24 August 1999.

Women Triple Jump Final

This was a competition decided in the very first round. Tsiamita of Greece imposed herself on the rest of the field with an impressive 14.88 effort. She had jumped 15.07m in qualification and so was clearly on good form in Seville. Kasparkova (CZE)the defending champion, was also in reasonable form and produced 14.54 in the same round. The second round saw a reply by the Cuban Aldama who leapt 14.61m and Prandzheva (BUL)15.54m to keep the medals open. Lebedeva (RUS) showed she was also not to be forgotten, leaping 14.55 with her third effort. At the end of the third round Ashia Hansen the world indoor recordholder was eliminated. The fourth and fifth rounds were uneventful except for the Greek Vasdeki who produced 14.61 to equal the mark of second placer,Aldama, and take the third position. The competition was decided, the places did not change in the final round. the defending champion Kaspakova ended in sixth and the gold was Tsiamita's.
