Bond Dissociation

Why does the bond weaken in the change from a triple bond in N2 to single bond in F2?

Triple bonds are the strongest because more electrons are shared than in a single bond

Compared to single bond, triple bond means more electrons are shared, shorter bond length, and stronger connection between the bonding atoms. Therefore, single bond is weaker than triple bond.
