It took me time to realize that the men who won Olympic gold medals in the decathlon are just men, just like me.
Dan O'Brien

I didn't even know what it was when I started. But I was lucky. I found it at 16. Most people don't discover decathlon until they're 21 or 22.

Most people doing the decathlon these days are quite boring, so people don't relate to them.
Daley Thompson

Sometimes you have to resist working on your strengths in favour of your weaknesses. The decathlon requires a wide range of skills.
