Congratulations to Damian Warner on Olympic Bronze Medal
Congratulations to Damian for capturing the bronze medal in the men's decathlon at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. With a score of 8,666, Damian matches Dave Steen, a Canadian decathlete who won a bronze medal at the 1988 Summer Games in Seoul, for the best-ever Canadian finish in the decathlon. Ashton Eaton of the United States claimed gold while Kevin Mayer of France took home the silver.
Damian is the reigning Canadian and Pan Am Games record holder for the decathlon, an athletics discipline consisting of 10 track and field events held over two consecutive days. After clinching the gold medal at the Pan Am Games in Toronto in July, Damian went on to win the silver medal at the 2015 World Championships in Athletics recently held in Beijing.
We are very proud of Damian’s great athletic achievements and wish him continued success in future competitions.
