Christian Taylor signed a contract with athletics company Li-Ning, forgoing his last year of collegiate eligibility. After the 2012 Olympics, a knee injury had Taylor questioning if his elite-level jumping career could continue. Then in 2013, he moved to England to follow his coach.
His largest source of motivation to work hard, especially in the off season, is his desire to set a good example for his younger sister, who also competes in track and field.
Taylor says he hopes to leave behind the same kind of legacy that Walter Davis has left behind: one full of fun, confidence, and enjoyment.
