Phillips Idowu 2
European award for top triple jumper

03 October 2009

World Triple jump gold medallist Phillips Idowu (Belgrave Harriers) has been voted the 2009 winner of the men's European Athlete of the Year Award presented by MONDO.

The Olympic silver medallist celebrates the award following an impressive year which came to a head when he got the better of Olympic champion Nelson Évora (Potugal) to take the IAAF World Championship title in Berlin this August, with a world-leading leap and personal best of 17.73m.

Idowu will receive the Award at the European Athletics Convention in Budapest on Saturday 17 October alongside the women's European Athlete of the Year winner Marta Domínguez and the European Athletics Rising Star of the Year winners.
