WARNER’S GOLDEN MOMENT

Damian Warner could not be beaten and he would not be denied his gold medal moment.
 
Competing in Tokyo’s famous heat and humidity over two days, the decathlon is one of the toughest events on the Olympic program and the most grueling.
 
It was under these conditions that Warner led from start to finish, setting a new Olympic record, a new Canadian record, and a personal best score of 9,018 points. He also joined the ultra-exclusive 9,000-point club – a club in which he is just the fourth member.
 
What a way to win your first Olympic championship.
 
“It’s really special. It’s one of those things that, when you’re younger you set little dreams and goals. I just remember watching athletes like Donovan Bailey and Catriona Le May Doan celebrating and winning gold medals. I was sitting there on the couch with my mom saying, ‘I want to do that one day,’ and it’s really cool to come out here to live that dream,” said Warner.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“Sage gave it to me in a great position. We were right there with Great Britain. I just tried to tuck in on her outside and get it to Kyra in the best position I could. Our cheer before we came in here was just ‘Fight,’ and I think that’s what we’re trying to do here.” – Maddy Price

A LOOK AHEAD…

Every race, jump or throw at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games just might turn out to be ‘the highlight of the Games’. Don’t miss a moment of the action.
