GB triple jumper Phillips Idowu will compete in tomorrow's qualifiers following fitness doubts, the BOA confirm.

The British Olympic Association have confirmed that Team GB triple jumper Phillips Idowu will compete in tomorrow's qualifiers, despite initial fitness fears.

The 33-year-old was an original doubt for the Games after suffering what was believed to be a nerve problem with his left knee.

Despite delaying the process of issuing his medical records to the BOA, it does appear that the Brit will contest for a medal this week.

"He's set to compete. All is good," a BOA spokesman told BBC Sport.

Phillips will begin his triple jump qualifiers at 10.45am tomorrow.
