Teddy Tamgho took Gold in the Men’s Triple Jump Final at the IAAF World Championships in Moscow after breaking the 18 metre mark in his final jump.
The Frenchmen had been dogged by a set of fouls and it looked as though Cuba’s Pedro Pechardo might be in with a chance of winning as the pair tied at 17.68.
Tamgho pulled the winning distance out of the bag on his sixth attempt. At 18.04m, the jump represents a world leading result for the present season.
