The struggle for the first place between Christian Taylor of USA, the Olympic champion (17.66 this season), and Teddy Tamgho of Frances (17.47 this season) will surely be of high level in the men’s triple jump in Lausanne
Tamgho is back from injury after 20 months off-track. To this day, Tamgho’s PB is 17.98 (world-record 17.92 indoors) and right behind him stands Taylor’s PB with 17.96.
Both men will be in Moscow for the World Championchips in August. According to the french newspaper “L’Equipe”, actual world record-holder Jonathan Edwards (18.29) isn’t so confident in keeping his record for long.
