    Outstanding performance by Damian Warner. By definition, the decathletes are the greatest male athletes in the world.
    I am already looking forward to 2016 when Damian is on the podium.

    Thanks for this, Ken . . . 2016 will be exciting. Part of my admiration for Damian Warner this time around, aside from his excellence …. fifth! wow! . . . is his seemingly unaffected approach to the Games, to the sudden way he has become a star. Plus he played basketball for Montcalm not so long ago. Inspiring indeed.
