• Multi-eventer TRIUMPHS at the finish!

    21 July at 14:54 from atlas

    German teenager Niklas Kaul overcame a serious elbow injury last year (which could have curtailed his aspirations in the javelin, and from that, the decathlon).

    Today he showed that he was fully recovered, by setting a new record with the spear in this combined events competition. His 71.59m enabled him to get within touching distance of the gold medal after 9 events - he then went and surpassed his best in the 1500m, resulting in a Championship record points score of 8162.

    There were more outstanding performances on Day 2, so be sure to read the reports and results here...
