Best Decathlon Team Ever . . .


Before I go out on a limb and say that this could be our best Decathlon team sent to the Olympics ever! While it certainly is a great assembly of athletes, we need to take a look at the previous OT’s and compare. Here are the top 3 finishers from 2008 back to 1976 with Bruce Jenner (now featured on the E Channel).


20042000199619921988198419801976While 2008 is certainly amongst the top for OT scores, the year 1996 might have a slight edge. Also, in relation to the world record at the time, the 1976 team was one for the ages as well. Thoughts?Discuss entry
