This Ain't Your Grandpa's Grueling Decathlon Gary Bastien Mar 04, 2014

Former American decathlete, Gary Bastien, talks about the differences in the decathlon event in the last 60+ years from a first-hand account at some of the highest levels of competition an athlete can achieve. "The one pit decathlons were grueling because of the amount of time waiting, staying loose enough to relax when you could and ready enough to perform when you should for over 25 hours."
