Note: Has lived in Sweden for just about his whole life as he was only a few weeks old when family moved from Gambia
in early '82. Grew up in same neighbourhood as Christian Olsson, Yannick Tregaro and Patrik Kristiansson in the
Göteborg suburb of Angered.
The '95 WCh in hometown made great impact on the 13 years old. Decided after seeing Sergey Bubka in action that Pole
Vault was the sport to pursue!
Won final major meet before '05 WCh – the IAAF Super GP "DN Galan" – defeating i.a. 5 of would-be Helsinki top-7
but still couldn't be entered into the WCh due to not having made the then A-standard of 5.75. When getting the chance in
the '06 WICh immediately proved himself by taking the silver medal. Hampered by hamstring problems during summer of
'06 and winter and summer of '07. Missed '10 due to foot injury sustained when landing outside of the pit during training.

Note: First coach Viljo Nousiainen had developed clubmate Patrik Sjöberg into the world’s premier high jumper in mid
1980’s. When Viljo suddenly passed away in spring of '99 Yannick Tregaro (himself guided by Viljo to 2.17 and a World
Junior Ch final at age 18 in '96) stepped in as coach despite being Christian’s senior by just two years.
“Birth” as true worldclass triple jumper on 14 June '01: On a rain-soaked Helsinki Olympic Stadium got first 17m-mark
as well as first victory over legend Jonathan Edwards.
Since first exceeding 17m has surpassed that limit in 104 out of 110 meets (including a streak of 58 meets). Adding five
qualification rounds he has 109 competitions at 17+!
Achieved the "Grand Slam" of championships (OG, WCh, WICh, ECh, EICh) in '02-'04.
In '04 claimed 50% of the Golden League jackpot after winning the TJ at all six meets.
Kept out of competition from 18 Sep '04 until 12 June '06 by ankle injury which needed four operations. Despite that long
layoff had 17.09 in first attempt in comeback meet and in less than a month had reached 17.62.
In all his eight international championship qualifying rounds from '01 WCh onwards achieved the pre-set standard for the
final on his very first attempt.
Persistent hamstring problems ruined most of the years '07-'09: After 13 July '07 only one meet in '08 and three in '09.
Returned in '10 and although competing rather sparingly proved that he still was highly competitive, e.g. illustrated by
placing 2-2-1-3 in his four Diamond League starts.
Resides in Monaco since autumn of '02.
Undisputed No 1 in the EAA voting for male “European Athlete of 2003”.

Father Mats (Persson, b '49): 800m: 1:59.4m '66.
Note: Winter of '04 ran the 200m in six meets, improved the NIR on four occasions and won all races but the last, the
WICh final which he lost by 0.06.
In March '06 ran an unofficial European Indoor record for 300m in Liévin lowering Erwin Skamrahl's 20 years old mark
of 32.72 by 0.11.
First international success as a 400m-runner (silver at '01 European Juniors) but then chose 200m as main event to improve his speed. However, long term focus remained at 400m and after '06 ECh 200m silver switched priorities and re-focused on the 1-lap event.
In summer of '07 lowered PB by over one second and in Osaka WCh ran sub-45 in all three rounds.
Had four individual silvers, one bronze and two 4th places from international championships before striking gold at '09
European Indoors.
From '01 WCh to '09 WCh competed in every championship (Olympic, World and European) outdoors and indoors, i.e.
did 17 straight championship starts before passing the '10 indoor season.
