GATESHEAD (GBR): During the European Team Championships launch olympic winner Greg Rutherford informed that he is set to relocate to Phoenix, Arizona, as he prepares to pursue a gold medal at the world athletics championships in Moscow next August. The Olympic long jump champion seems certain to follow his coach, Dan Pfaff, to the United States’s Sun Belt after Christmas in order to continue his recovery from three recent operations.
„It’s still not 100% confirmed but it’s looking as if we’re going to be based in Phoenix,” said Rutherford. „I’m very hopeful that will be the case because, ultimately, I need to stay working with Dan. He got me to where I am now.” Dan Pfaff also started to coach the 2007 High Jump world champion Donald Thomas from Bahamas.
