Double Olympic and three-time world champion in the men's triple jump, Christian Taylor recorded his PB of 18 metres 21 centimetres at the 2015 World Championships in Beijing. It was (and remains, for now...!) just 8cms behind the world record set by Britain's Jonathan Edwards back in 1995. During the 2017 World Athletics Championships in London, Christian spoke to us about his hopes of one day setting a new world record, and how his life in athletics is influenced by his strong faith as a follower of Jesus Christ.
