Damian Warner found his sweet spot at the 44th Hypomeeting in Gotzis, Austria over the past two days. The Canadian Olympic medalist decathlete was finally healthy after a virus plagued World Championships last summer in London. He also avoided a no height in the pole vault that eliminated him at the Commonwealth Games in Australia this spring.
He delivered an amazingly strong 2 days in the 10 event challenge which many consider to be reflective of the greatest athlete in the world. He moves to the top of the 2018 world list and breaks his own Canadian record by 200 points with his 8795 points.
Saturday 100m- 10.31, Long jump-7.81m, Shot put- 14.83m, High jump-2.03m 400m- 47.72
Today 110m hurdles 13.56, Discus- 47.52m Pole vault 4.80m, Javelin-61.94m, 1500m 4:26.59
Damian will compete at the 35th Vancouver Sun Harry Jerome Track Classic on June 26 and 27 at the newly rebuilt track at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby. He is likey to choose the 110m Hurdles which he won in last year's Jerome Classic.
He moved from London, ON last year to train with Les Gramantik in Calgary and it is wonderful to see that he is making progress with his great performance in Gotzis.
It is advised to get your tickets early as the Jerome Classic sold out in advance in 2017
