Step aside for the night, Sydney McLaughlin. Kentucky’s Tim Duckworth won the men’s decathlon at the NCAA Championships tonight with 8,336 points, the fifth best score in meet history. He’s just the second man in NCAA history to win the indoor heptathlon and outdoor decathlon in the same year.
The decathlon is the ultimate test of strength and stamina. Over two days, athletes must complete the 100-meter sprint, 110-meter hurdles, 400 meters, 1,500 meters, long jump, high jump, shot put, discus throw, javelin throw and pole vault.
