Teddy Tamgho answered the triple jump of 17.57m by Phillips Idowu last night in Birmingham with a new WR of 17.91m, breaking his own WR from Doha, Quatar during the World Indoor Champs. Tamgho has been seriously considering adding the long jump to his repertoire: he looks ready for some serious jumping at the 2011 European Indoors in Paris, March 4-6, 2011.
