Sports Athlé-championships from Europe: it starts well!
Canada's Damian Warner "gutted" with how his quest for a world decathlon title ended
TORONTO — Damian Warner would have loved to have been at Hayward Field to watch his friends complete Day 2 of the decathlon at the world championships. But while they were running the 1,500 metres, the decathlon's final event, he was in an MRI machine for the second time that day. They'd mistakenly done an MRI of his hip earlier. Warner's quest for a first world decathlon title ended with a hamstring injury in the 400 metres in Eugene, Ore. Canada's Olympic champion was a puddle of tears in coach Gar Leyshon's arms afterward. "It's just something that I cared about," Warner said, on the emotions.

Still marked by the disappointment of Eugene, last month in Oregon, the French quartet of 4х- $ M made the trip to Munich only in one objective: forget the failure of the Worlds in S ' Offering at least one medal in Bavaria and if possible in the most beautiful metal possible on these European championships. A dream always accessible after Friday morning series. Mickaël Zézé, Ryan Zézé, Pablo Mateo and Jimmy Vicaut, disqualified in the final in Eugene for a transmission of the Hors-Zone relay, have indeed validated their ticket for a new final after their second place in the second series, behind Germany and In front of Poland, while Italy, deprived at the last minute of the Olympic and world champion Marcel Jacobs, wounded, had to be satisfied with 5th place. With Vicaut as the last relay, the French team has also signed a very beautiful time, in 38 ”17, second time of the two series combined.
Commonwealth Games close a hectic stretch of competition for Canadian athletes
Separated by eight time zones, but only four days, Sarah Mitton and her Canadian teammates barely had time to do laundry and repack between the world track and field championships and the Commonwealth Games. Mitton, who captured gold in women's shot put at the Games in Birmingham, England, was surprised by the physical and emotional toll of competing in two big events back-to-back. "It's funny, I thought it was going to be easier than it was,"Mitton, who captured gold in women's shot put at the Games in Birmingham, England, was surprised by the physical and emotional toll of competing in two big events back-to-back.
Vicaut: "We are going to do the job"
enough to approach the final of Sunday with great hope and ambition for our four tricolors. "We were aiming for automatic qualification, it's done," the first relayer Mickaël Zézé at the microphone of France Television while Pablo Mateo assured French supporters in advance that they should not be disappointed on Sunday. "In the final, normally, we take a little more risks. There, we will try to do things well. We have worked, we will rectify our mistakes and we can go even much faster, I guarantee it." For Vicaut, the most experienced of the four men, it is not appropriate to get carried away too early, especially since Great Britain will be a scarecrow in the final. And she will not be the only one in this case. "They had a medal at the world championships, they are the favorites, with the Germans, who are at home. And afterwards, it's a surprise. In Eugene, we saw each other medalists, and there was a Hors-zone. We're going to do the job and go as far as possible. " "And go get what we came to get." To use the terms of Ryan Zézé, who could not better summarize the state of mind of the quartet.
