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?

suspecting loops -e.g. routing loop indicated such that one or more routers being repeated several times within the traceroute. This discussion may be of interest

Another but having the repeated interleaved which make is more probably looping issue and confirmed with ping seeing error message will show “TTL expired in transit”.

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
