If you are not fans of athletics - then a quick explanation. The Decathlon is a modern outdoor track and field event for men comprising of ten different disciplines over two days.
So here are my selection in competition order;
Edouard Fraisse, above and unsigned below.
Left unsigned and right probably L O Mattei
no attempts at Fosbury Flops here !
400 metres Sprint
both of these are by Edouard Fraisee.
The female outdoor equivalent is the Heptathlon and the Modern Pentathlon is an event created for the modern Olympics that involves 5 non track and fields event - there's two more challenges for future postings !!
