Damian Warner’s quest for a world decathlon title is over.
The 32-year-old from London, Ont., suffered an obvious hamstring harm about 120 metres into the 400 on Saturday, the ultimate occasion of Day 1.
Canada’s Olympic champion was the chief by means of the primary 4 occasions of the day.
Pierce Lepage of Whitby, Ont., was second after Day 1 on Saturday, with 4,485 factors. Ayden Owens-Delerme of Puerto Rico moved into the lead after Warner’s harm.
Warner has by no means gained world decathlon gold. He has a silver and two bronze.
Ultimately summer season’s Tokyo Olympics, Warner shattered his Canadian document and have become considered one of simply 4 decathletes in historical past to high the 9,000-point barrier.
