Damian Warner had gone into the Hypo Meeting aiming to become the event’s first six-time winner but he ended up making history in other ways at the World Athletics Challenge – Combined Events meeting in Götzis on Sunday (30).
The stage is Gotzis, on a sun-drenched Sunday afternoon in the last weekend of May. The throb of dance music reverberates around the Mosle-Stadion. Hands are clapping, voices are whooping, and all eyes are on the pole vault beds at the south end of the infield.
Britain’s Holly Mills and Norway’s Martin Roe are the overnight leaders at the Multistars in Lana, the first leg of the World Athletics Challenge – Combined Events.
