Cape Town - Christian
Taylor qualified for the men's triple jump in pole position after
bounding his way to an impressive distance of 17.24 metres while South
Africa's Godfrey Khotso Mokoena was unable to progress after posting a
best distance of 16.51 metres in his three attempts.
The Olympic Stadium was the venue for the qualification round of the men's triple jump on Monday and Taylor, the current title holder from London 2012, was the star of the show.
Taylor, who is just 26-years-of-age, seems on track to claim his second gold medal in this event.
