CLEMSON, S.C. - She may have dropped the multi-events to focus on the sprints and jumps in 2014, but Whitney Fountain's versatility still knows no bounds.

Case in point - just last week the senior track & field athlete tried her hand in a new event for the first time, the triple jump. The results were stunning. In just one week of practice, Fountain jumped over 13 meters - a team-leading 42-9 distance that ranks 14th in the NCAA.

Fountain, an All-ACC performer this season in the 60-meter dash and long jump, met with ClemsonTigers.com this week to discuss her newest trade. The video also includes reaction to her latest feat from Head Coach Mark Elliott and Assistant Coach Chris Bostwick. Click the ‘play' button on the photo above or watch the YouTube video below.
