At the very end of the World Indoor Championships in 2010, Teddy Tamgho broke the the world indoor record in the triple jump. In 2011, Tamgho was injured, and it took eighteen months before he was back.

Teddy Tamgho came back well. In Moscow, Tamgho dominated the triple jump. He had won the triple jump, and on his last jump, Teddy Tamgho just flew, over 18 meters. Eighteen point zero four meters! The longest jump since 1996.
