Triple jumper Teddy Tamgho set for return

Paris: World champion triple jumper Teddy Tamgho is to return to competition on Saturday after serving a one-year ban for a doping offence, his agent said on Monday.

The 25-year-old Frenchman last competed in August, 2013 when he won the world title in Moscow with a superb leap of over 18 metres.

He then sustained a fracture of his left tibia during a training session in November of that year and was hit with a one-year ban in March of last year after missing three dope test assignments.

His agent Ludovic Oliere said that Tamgho would compete in a meeting at Ermont-Eaubonne, near Paris, on Saturday after completing a training camp at Alicante in Spain.

His main aim for this year will be to defend his world title in Beijing in August.
