Rypakova takes triple jump gold

Kazakhstan's Olga Rypakova produces a season's best jump of 14.98 metres to take gold in the women's triple jump final at the London Olympics.

The 27-year-old former heptathlete and long jumper produces a jump big enough to see off Caterine Ibarguen of Colombia and Ukraine's world and double European champion Olha Saladuha who took silver and bronze respectively.

Team GB's womens team captain, Yamilé Aldama, came fifth after she jumped a distance of 14.48 metres.
