Des hommes complets - la formidable histoire du pentathlon et du décathlon à travers les âges by Frédéric Gousset (Complete men)

Complete men is the story of a passion which crosses time and continues today with the promises of fights to come.

The moderns Olympic Games of Stockholm in 1912 updated the “All-around men” in a European way, by replacing from now on the heavy throws by discus and javelin, unknown at that time in the US. Ten contests in two days, it’s the new size which was imposed and remained unchanged, in spite of the numerous criticisms which were accumulated, as long as this event remained confined to the Olympic terms. Too thankless, and not spectacular, nor gratifying. Decathlon was even compared with the Roman circus.
