    Doubtless both would have preferred gold, but it will be a little less awkward when guests come over and admire the Uibo trophy case than if there were a gold and silver hanging in there.

    Of course, the Eatons manage just fine I'm sure.

    Amazing to me that the world champion ran his first event in 11.27 (only 801 points) and went on to win the gold medal with 8,691 points.

    The website Decathlon 2000 lists 123 decathletes all-time whose best score is 8312 or more (last updated 21 July 2019). Kaul's 11.27 100m is slower than that of every decathlete on the list including his previous best decathlon at the European Under 23s this year.
