Athletics: the wind carries Taylor to Szekesfehervar

Paris – The US Olympic champion Christian Taylor won Tuesday the triple jump of the meeting of Szekesfehervar (Hungary) with a jump to 17.93 meters, largely helped by the wind however (+3.4 m / s).

He meets his compatriot Will Claye, second Tuesday (17.66 m, +1.2 m / s), became the 3rd best performer in history with 18.14 m on June 30.

Best performer of the season on 100 m, the American Christian Coleman dominated the 200 m (19.91), however far from the hot weather of his compatriot Noah Lyles (19.50) realized Friday in Lausanne.

On the half-lap also, the Shaunae Miller-Uibo (22 sec 18, +0.7 m / s) was ahead of the Ivorian Marie-José Ta Lou (22 sec 76).

French side, Alexandra Tavernier continues its good start to the season with the victory in the hammer throw (72.84 m), while Quentin Bigot finished 4th in men (75.74 m) far behind the Polish Pawel Fajdek (80, 49 m).


The hurler Pascal Martinot-Lagarde must be satisfied with the 6th place (13 sec 54) of a very high 110m hurdles won by the American neo-professional Grant Holloway (13.16) before the Brazilian Gabriel Constantino (13.18, record of America from South).
