The Shoe Addicts present: Christian Taylor, Will Claye and Nelson Evora talk Triple Jump, Men's Triple Jump London2017 WC Presser


This presser is truly a gem. It is in my top 4 from London, along with Adam Kzczot, Pierre Ambroise Bosse and Kipyegon Bett on the 800 meters, Tomas Walsh, Joe Kovacs and Stipe Zuni in the men's shot put, and Faith Kipyegon, Jenny Simpson and Caster Semenya (women's 1,500 meters).

Christian Taylor, Will Claye and Nelson Evora were fun to watch competing in London, but they were mesmerizing in their presser. In pressers, most of the major reporters had asked questions in mixed zone, and with our front row positions, thanks to Adam Johnson Eder of The Shoe Addicts, I was positioned to ask questions of nearly each athlete. Taylor, Claye are great communicators and their affection for Nelson Evora, the Methuselah of the triple jump (five medals so far), was obvious. Nelson Evora did not let his frustration over being able to only compete once in major meetings in 2017. Evora is a tremendous talent, and at his advanced age (for a triple jumper), Nelson should be revered.
