Eugene, Oregon – On a day when the United States honoured its Decathlon legends, Ashton Eaton produced a performance worthy of such a gathering.
- Cuba’s youngster Leonel Suárez took the Decathlon title at the 12th Erdgas Meeting in Ratingen – IAAF World Combined Events Challenge – establishing a Cuban record of 8451 points. The 20-year-old had only recently improved the national best to 8366 points at the Götzis meeting. </P>
- Yordani Garcia und Norman Müller dominierten den ersten Tag des Zehnkampfes beim <STRONG>13.
