Quote Of The Day
“I have to work on my weak events. It’s easier to get more points in the long jump and the 100 than in the javelin because those events are not that good. The step from 77 metres to the next 100 points is 83 metres, and that’s a slightly bigger step than 11.17 in the 100 to 10.80. That’s easier to work on, even if it’s not that much fun for me, because nobody likes to train their bad events! But I think it’s the most important thing to do in the next couple of years. I want to be a decathlete with no bad events. That would be the perfect story. But, you know, no story is perfect. Every decathlete has a story to tell. And it’s not just the story of one decathlon, it’s a story that progresses over the years. Show people how you’re doing, and how you struggle with injuries or bad training sessions and show them the way of – maybe someday – an Olympic decathlete, and how exciting that is. Every decathlete has to tell these stories. Because once you’re doing decathlon, you don’t want to do anything else.”
