Damian WarnerDamian Warner surpassed all expectations when he finished fifth in his Olympic debut in the grueling two-day decathlon at London 2012. It was the second-best Olympic finish ever by a Canadian decathlete, behind Dave Steen’s bronze at Seoul 1988. He beat his previous personal best score by more than 300 points, thanks to personal best marks in six of the 10 events (400m, 1500m, high jump, long jump, discus, javelin). He improved his personal best to 8512 points in winning bronze at the 2013 IAAF World Championships, thanks to personal best marks in shot put, pole vault, and javelin. He is the second-highest scoring Canadian decathlete in history behind Michael Smith, who was the last Canadian to win a world championship medal in 1995. Warner achieved another career highlight in 2013 when he won the prestigious Hypo-Meeting in Götzis, Austria. In 2014 he added a gold medal from the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Warner won the first of three consecutive Canadian decathlon titles in 2011.
