Mayer on fire
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.
