Tuesday, May 28, 2013

Damian Warner held on to his opening day lead to win the men’s decathlon at the Hypo Meeting on Sunday, while fellow Canadian Brianne Theisen won the women’s heptathlon.

Warner, a native of London, Ont., won the hurdles to increase his lead before capturing the title with 8,307 points, 125 clear of Carlos Chinin of Brazil. Gunnar Nixon of the United States came third with 8,136.

Theisen, from Humboldt, Sask., defended a slim five-point overnight lead and finished with 6,376 to beat Dutch pair Nadine Broersen with 6,345 and Dafne Schippers with 6,287.

Theisen briefly lost her lead to Schippers after the long jump but went to the top of the leaderboard again after the javelin and placed second in the 800 metres to wrap up the victory.
