OLY DEC w8aug-th9aug

Ashton Eaton, USA, '88, 1.85, 86kg, PB 9039 '12 WR
10.21/0.4 - 8.23/0.8 - 14.20 - 2.05 - 46.70 / 13.70/-0.8 - 42.81 - 5.30 - 58.87 - 4:14.48

pbs 10.21, 8.23, 14.78, 2.11, 45.68, 13.35, 47.36, 5.30, 61.68, 4.14.48
---- 1044, 1120, 776, 906, 1025, 1060, 816, 1004, 763, 850 = 9364

My money is on Ashton to win

Trey Hardee, USA, 1.96m, 95kg, PB 8790 '09
10.45/0.2 7.83/1.9 15.33 1.99 48.13 13.86/0.3 48.08 5.20 68.00 4:48.91

pbs 10.39, 7.88, 15.94, 2.06, 47.51, 13.61, 52.68, 5.30, 68.99, 4.42.23
------1001, 1030, 848, 859, 933, 1025, 926, 1004, 874, 666 = 9166

World Champ '09 & '11 but will his 10-month old elbow injury inhibit him, or will he rise to new heights - which might be necessary to beat ever-improving Eaton

3rd? after these 2? There are 3 Europeans over 8500: Behrenbruch, Alphen, Sintnicolass.
