Canadian Damian Warner wins gold in decathlon, sets Olympic

BY , Aug 5, 2021 3:53 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Damian Warner has become the first Canadian to win the gold medal in the decathlon.

The 31-year-old from London, Ontario set an Olympic record in the process -- with nine-thousand and 18 points.

That shattered the previous Olympic record of 88-hundred and 93 points.

Warner often wore an ice vest during the competition to battle the high heat and humidity in Tokyo during the gruelling 10-event competition.

Pierce LePage of Whitby, Ontario finished fifth, with a personal-best score of 86-hundred and four points.
