Mayer on fire

Kevin Mayer won the triathlon at the MEETING de PARIS on Saturday at the Charléty Stadium, treating himself to two personal bests along the way.

In a repeat of last year, Kevin Mayer took part in a triathlon at the MEETING de PARIS on Saturday at Charléty. And like last year, he put on a show. The reigning world decathlon champion took victory with 2,860 points ahead of the Ukrainian Oleksiy Kasyanov (2,643pts) and Grenadian Victor Lindon (2,464 pts).

 

Posting a convincing performance in the long jump (7.62m), Mayer excelled in the shot put (16.51m) and the 110m hurdles (13"71), securing personal bests in both, and really making the most of his participation in the Parisian meeting in front of an audience which was right behind him.
