ESPN: Christian Taylor wins triple jump

LONDON -- Christian Taylor won the Olympic triple jump gold medal on Thursday night to go with his world title, overtaking U.S. teammate Will Claye with his fourth jump in the final. Taylor continued his season-leading form with a best jump of 17.81 meters, 19 centimeters clear of second-place Claye. Italy's Fabrizio Donato, the 35-year-old European champion, took bronze at 17.48. Taylor is the world champion outdoors and Claye has the world indoor title, and together they're looking to break the world record of 18.29 meters set by Britain's Jonathan Edwards in 1995.

Gator Nation Is At The 2012 Olympics, Day 11: Christian Taylor Set Up To Medal

Taylor required one jump to qualify first at 17.21 meters for the semifinals of the men's triple jump on Tuesday. The efforts re-establish Taylor as the favorites to capture gold in their respective events. Taylor's been the gold medal favorite since he won the triple jump at the 2011 World Championships, and he's far and away the best U.S. jumper, having taken all of one attempt to post the best jump at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials.

American Triple Jumper Christian Taylor: the Will to Win From Within

The 2012 Games mark the Olympic debut of 22-year-old Christian Taylor, the youngest competitor in the triple jump finals (save for his American teammate, Will Claye). Taylor: "The passion and drive that I have takes my body to another level." Taylor was the 2011 world champion in the triple jump—an event in which the United States hasn’t won an Olympic medal since the 1996 Games in Atlanta—and he represents the United States' best chance at winning gold in a men’s track & field event.

My Toughest Workout: Olympic Triple Jumper Christian Taylor

Though he’s also a top-notch competitor in the long jump and 400-meter relay, Christian Taylor narrowed his goals: Now he wants to beat the world record in the triple jump. “Coach says it’s better to exceed in one than to be average in several,” he says. And that the Fayatteville, Ga. native has. Taylor’s personal best, 17.96, won him gold at the World Championships in South Korea in 2011. Ultimately, he’s looking to top the world record, set by Jonathan Edwards at 18.29 in 1995. He hopes that the Olympic crowds will help get him revved.

Steve Gregory and Will Allen: Patriots Free Agent Reset

I think we can all agree that if there was one area in the Patriots defense that most needed an upgrade this offseason, it was next to Patrick Chung at safety. Despite a weak safety draft class and a shallow free agent market, the Patriots addressed that need drafting Tavon Wilson and Nate Ebner and signing Steve Gregory and Will Allen. So where will Gregory and Allen fit in this season and are they the answer the Patriots need?

Mallory Weggemann - Challenge Magazine Feature

Competitive swimmer Mallory Weggemann thought her days of competing were over in 2008 when she learned she was paralyzed from the waist down, complications from an epidural she had been given for severe back pain. Luckily, she was wrong, very wrong. This month, the 23-year-old Minnesota native will be competing in up to nine events during the London 2012 Paralympics. Her accomplishments since becoming disabled are noteworthy. She won five gold medals and broke six world records at the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) World Short Course Championships in 2009. During the 2010 IPC World Championships, she took home eight gold medals, one silver and set nine world records.
