BGP looking glass

I did a traceroute on an IP public address through the Sprintlink looking glass (www.sprint.net/lg/) and at the end I saw my IP address listed 3 times (see below). What does it mean?

Thanks for the links. I will take a look at them. I am trying to understand if it is really a loop because the same ip address repeated itself 3 times through the traceroute.

But eventually the result should be successful in completing the traceroute else there  would be some faults along the way
