Sam Talbot (OC 2013–2017) World Leading Under 20 Decathlon Score

In April, GB athlete Sam Talbot competed in his first Under 20 decathlon.

Sam smashed all expectations, apart from maybe his own very high standards, in an incredible performance. Overall Sam set an astounding eight new personal bests in the 100m, 110m hurdles, shot putt, high jump, 1500m, 400m, discus and javelin to record a phenomenal score of 7377 points. Sam simply left the rest of the field trailing in his wake with his nearest competitor over 100o points back on 6267. Sam’s huge total score gave him comfortable qualification for the upcoming European Junior Championships and also established a world-leading score for Under 20 decathlon this year.
