How many ways can we say, “ Roman Šebrle of the Czech Republic is the world’s greatest performer ever in the century ‐old tradition of the decathlon? I can think of at least five: Šebrle’s uniqueness, longevity, consistency,
Roman Šebrle became the first decathlete ever to achieve over 9000 points, setting the World Record at 9026 points (Götzis 2001), succeeding his compatriot, Tomaš Dvorak, who had scored 8994 points two years earlier (Prague 1999).
I want to thank the publisher of this site very much, because I wrote my final work for school about "A critial view of decathlon" and Decathlon 2000 is the most important homepage about this topic. I am a decathlete myself and wish everybody much fun with this topic - Uli Röhrl
