Idowu has had his Phill
JONATHAN EDWARDS does not think there is any way back into the British athletics team for Phillips Idowu.
The 34-year-old triple jumper announced last month he would be taking a step back from the sport “for the foreseeable future”.
Idowu has competed only once since last year’s Olympics, where he had been among the favourites for gold but failed to make the final.
Triple jump world record holder Edwards said: “At his age and with the problems he had last year, I don’t think we will see him again.
“With the injuries and the breakdown in his relationship with his coach Aston Moore and British Athletics, he became isolated.”
