There are many languages build for a specific purpose, Python is considered as high level language which come with many boiler plates which increases execution time(That couse TTL internally) and it is best for its simplicity and code readability.

In recent code Jam Qualification round I found the best python code, which contains less than 10 lines of code while for other submitions and you'll find plenty of code for the same solution. Check that out here... codingcompetitions.withgoogle.com/... (submitted this solution in 1 minute 53 sec)
[Note: This python guy have used CPP in next 2 submissions.]

Though, I agree with Avi after using python and Java.
Anyway, Language is just a syntax, CP is all about problem solving ,algorithms and competition.
So go ahead with any language.
CP is more harder than writing comments. Best of luck.

I have had the same experience in the past CodeJam.
