This year’s Gotzis was all about Damian Warner. He has now taken the Gotzis decathlon crown a record six times, long jumped a Canadian national record and decathlon best (8.28m) and went number four on the all-time list (a whisker off the the 9,000+ club with 8995).
It ended a Canada 1-2 with Lapage coming through with a new PB. There was also a strong showing from Belgians Van Der Plaetsen and Pittomvils, and the Belarusian Zhuk who all score new decathlon PBs. Take a look below how the top eight performed against their PBs coming into the competition (the sorting function and overall scores are from their Gotzis results).
