Miltiadis “Miltos” Tentoglou(Greek Μιλτιάδης Τεντόγλου; born 18 March 1998 in Grevena) is a Greek track and field athlete who specializes in the long jump and triple jump. In 2018, he became the European champion at the European Championships in Berlin with a distance of 8.25 m.

Athletic career

Miltiadis Tendoglou has been active on the international stage in the long jump since 2015, first at the U18 World Championships, which were held in Cali, Colombia. There he finished fifth with a distance of 7.66m. Then, a year later, he finished silver at the 2016 World U20 Championships in Bydgoszcz with a distance of 7.91m. Later that year, he also made it to the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. There he couldn’t build on his previous distances with a distance of 7.64m and failed to qualify in the final 27th place.

In 2017, he set a new national U20 record at the Greek Championships with a distance of 8.30m, winning a long jump at a higher level for the first time in adult competition. That same year, he became the European U20 champion at the European U20 Championships in Grosseto, Italy, with a distance of 8.07m. At the subsequent World Championships for adults in London he did not get beyond 19th place in the qualification with a distance of 7.79 m.

In 2018, he achieved his greatest sporting success to date when he won the gold medal at the European Championships in Berlin with a distance of 8.25m, ahead of Germany’s Fabian Heinle and Ukraine’s Serhij Nykyforow, who both jumped the same distance.

A year later he won the title at the European Indoor Championships in Glasgow with a new personal best of 8.38m. Later in the summer he jumped another personal best with 8.32m, this time outdoors. This won him the title at the U23 European Championships. At the World Championships in Doha, he reached the final but only finished tenth with a distance of 7.79m, well below his qualifying distance. In 2021 he successfully defended his title at the European Indoor Championships in Toruń with a world best of 8.35m.

So far, Tendoglou has won a total of six times at Greek Championships, three times outdoors (2017-2019) and three times indoors (2019-2021)
