Before the summer season starts this weekend with the Multistars meeting in Italy, we take a look at the winter season.
Congratulations Kevin MAYER: Our French world record holder adds a new line to his list of achievements. After a fierce battle with the young Norwegian Sander SKOTHEIM, he won the heptathlon at the European Indoor Championships in Istanbul.
Mayer is used to great success in competition since his early career. For more than 10 years and his gold medal at the World Junior Athletics Championships, he has won numerous titles. Kevin Mayer, already undoubtedly one of the best French athletes of all time, continues to break all records in his discipline.
If you want to see his world record during the Decastar, don’t hesitate to watch this video, shivers guaranteed.
During these same European championships, a newly appointed world record holder that Decastar fans know well won the pentathlon. 5055 points is now the score to beat for all those who would like to dislodge the double world champion and double Olympic champion Nafissatou Thiam. For the record, Adrianna SUŁEK held this record for a few seconds during the same competition with 5014 points, beating Nataliya DOBRYNSKA’s previous record by one point.
One week later, during the American university championships, Kyle GARLAND, 22 years old American athlete, gave us a performance as unexpected as impressive. With 6,639 points, he is 6 points short of the world record held by the legend Ashton Eaton. With a personal best of 8720 points in the decathlon, we advise you to keep a close eye on this man during the World Championships in Budapest, and why not during the Decastar…
