I met Hugues Fabrice Zango in Doha last fall. HIs medal in the TJ was totally respected by Will Claye and Christian Taylor, the US dynamic duo in the TJ. Hughes is coached by Teddy Tamgho, 2013 WC in the TJ. He wants to do something big in Lieven. You must see this guy jump. He’s amazing, and he’s into jumping in such a way that one is drawn in.
LIEVIN (FRA): African triple jump record-holder Hugues Fabrice Zango, who jumped 17.77m in Paris at the start of the month, is aiming to produce “something great” in one of his home arenas. “Lievin is a home competition [for me], because in winter I work here. Every winter I work here. I know the stadium like my pocket. So the stadium is my home and I come here like twice a week, so here is really good. I know everything. The people who come here, I know it will be people from the club from this region, so everybody now knows me, so everybody will be there to clap, to support me. So here is home and I hope I will bring something great,” he said. The meeting record is held by his coach Teddy Tamgho at 17.64m.
