Olympian vows to bounce back


AFTER FAILING to progress through to the triple jump final at London 2012 Phillips Idowu has reiterated his desire to remain in the sport and is targeting gold at next year’s World Championships in Moscow.

Suffering from a number of injury issues, the east Londoner could only manage a leap of 16.53m on August 7 and did not qualify for the final.

However, the 33-year-old former European and world champion stated that he wants to be the number one ranked triple jumper in the world again at the 2013 World Championships.

He told The Evening Standard: “I’m ready for the World Championships. I’m in great shape and will be back to full fitness by the time Moscow comes around. I can be back as the best triple jumper in the world.”
