2018 Men’s Decathlon World Rankings

Among his many and varied skills, Kevin Mayer lowered his 110H PR to 13.71. (JIRO MOCHIZUKI/IMAGE OF SPORT)

WHAT DO YOU GET when you combine marks of 10.55, 25-7¼ (7.80), 52-6 (16.00), 6-8¾ (2.05), 48.42, 13.75, 165-10 (50.54), 17-10½ (5.45), 235-11 (71.90) & 4:36.11? A stunning decathlon World Record of 9126, which is exactly what Kevin Mayer did to finish off his season. The 26-year-old Frenchman thus made Ashton Eaton’s reign as the WR holder far shorter than most would have imagined…

A HIGH SCORE was expected for the reigning No. 1 this year, but it was supposed to come at the European Championships, and it seemed to be in the cards after a PR 100, but then disaster struck: 3 fouls in the long jump. “This is a black day for me. I do not have an excuse,” he said after eschewing a safety jump and going all-out on all three. “I am very sorry for those who expected a lot of me, for all my fans. I was in great shape. I wanted to show much more than this. This was a big mistake. I took a high risk, but I do not regret the risk. I know that many people were expecting a lot from me and it hurts to disappoint them. This is really frustrating for me. I am quite disgusted, but this is sport.”…

FOR THE SECOND YEAR in a row the U.S. failed to have a scorer. The last time that happened was ’83 & ’84, but that was actually part of a 4-year drought that started in ’81.
