    So Kendell finishes 5th with 6,412, her 2nd best score ever, I believe, 152 off her PR. 6.36m, 42.92m and 2:16.65.

    Erica takes 6th, 6,374 pts, about 350 shy of last year's PR here.

    Are you on a first name basis with all athletes?

    No, but in my previous post in this thread, I used their full names. So I thought I'd go with just first names on 2nd reference.

    And, as I'm presuming you might be referring to posts in other threads ... In the Colorado state meet thread, I used "Anna" because "Anna Hall" was mentioned in a post by another user right before me.

    I don't see other threads where I've done this, but if so, let me know and I'll explain why.

    ahh, Warner, with that 10.12, I was hoping you'd PR/score 8800+.

    Was it the PV (4.60) that did him in? Or the 1500? HH/DT/JT seemed good.

    Warner against his decathlon PB (8795). A (*) means PB
    100* 10.12 (+46)
    HJ 7.67 (-35)
    SP* 15.34 (32)
    HJ 2.00 (-28)
    400 47.38 (16)
    110h 13.64 (-2)
    DT 47.23 (-2)
    PV 4.60 (-59)
    JT 63.03 (26)
    1500 4:37.29 (-70)

    Before the 1500 he was 14 points (slightly more than 2 sec behind his PB pace). His chances of scoring +8,800 probably lost in the PV. I believe that if he would jumped 4.80 he would ran much faster in the 1500 (he would need to run 4:32.5) and join this elite club.

    I wonder if Moloney's 46.97 is a U20 decathlon best for 400. So far as I can see from looking at this year's best performances, it's the best 400 in a decathlon by anyone.

    Ladji Doucoure ran a 46.82 when he scored 7794 in 2001.

    Thanks olorin! Good stuff.

    I don't see where he can get another 300 points.

    It will be difficult as he already is quite effective at performing in a decathlon at close to his PB level.

    I looked at the athletes above Warner in the all-time list and compared them based on the difference between individual event bests vs their best decathlon:

    Athlete PBDec ScoredPBs Diff
    TomᚠDVOŘÁK 8994 9265 -271
    Kevin MAYER 9126 9424 -298
    Roman ŠEBRLE 9026 9328 -302
    Erki NOOL 8815 9240 -425
    Damian WARNER 8795 9239 -444
    Daley THOMPSON 8847 9315 -468
    Ashton EATON 9045 9549 -504
    Bryan CLAY 8832 9350 -518
    Dan O'BRIEN 8891 9572 -681
    It's clear that even if he achieves Dvorak levels of consistency (another ~170 points), he still won't get to 9k points.

    It's not even Moloney's best U20 decathlon 400m!

    He ran 46.86 last year and we discussed other fast 400s and Andres Byron Silva of Uruguary seemed to be the fastest at 46.80 in the PanAm U20 decathlon in 2005, just bettering Doucoure's time mentioned by gm.

    Relevant post.
