Christian Taylor, the 2011 IAAF World Outdoor Champion in the Triple Jump, is set to join The Runaround on ESPN on Monday, June 18th.

Taylor, a former University of Florida Gator, also won silver at the 2012 World Indoor Championship earlier this year, finishing behind his UF teammate Will Claye. Christian recently won the triple jump at the Prefontaine Classic, and then finished 2nd at the Diamond League meet in Oslo. He goes into the US Olympic Trials along with Claye as the overwhelming favorites to make the London Olympic team.

FYI, due to a flat tire we couldn't get Christian on the phone during the show. The interview was recorded after the show, and should be up soon on
