De Beauvoir's "king of the world" wins gold

Phillips Idowu from De Beauvoir Estate last night won gold in the World Championship tripple-jump final, with a huge leap of 17.73 metres.

His hard won success shows every young person that you should never give up on the goals you set yourself. Idowu had to settle for silver in Beijing, but last night was able to say: "I’m the king of the world."

And there's more to come from him yet. He told reporters: "I still have a dream of being the Olympic champion".
