When doing the Triple Jump what kind of skill is it? Is it open, Closed, self Paced, discrete, serial or continuous

surely it would classed mainly as a serial skill. A skill made up of many discrete elements, the hop, step and jump. But it also can be classed , but not to the same extreme, as a self paced skill as the performer decides when the skill starts and stops.

I would question the notion that an athlete dictates when a triple jump ends. Surely, gravity dictates when the skill ends.
