    I knew this was a matter of time as did a lot of other posters. Now this again proves what we always say here. Whites are the
    most overall athletic people on the planet. We dominate more sports than anyone can excel at the highest level. To the lurkers who come here but don't post, take note of this. The media constant lie is that only blacks are great athletes. Complete lies.

    Congrat to Kevin Mayer. One of the finest athletes the world has ever seen! This is such great news!

    This is something that always pisses me off. For the longest time, and to this day, Whites have always been outstandingly represented in the decathlon and usually are the very best at it.

    To have great ability in not one, but TEN events is incredible. It's no surprise why for many years, the Olympic decathlon winner was considered the "finest, all-around athlete in the world."

    However I've noticed that over the last thirty years, after that now-freak Bruce Jenner's victory, as it became more fashionable to prop up minorities, the decathlon became less cool because Blacks didn't win it.

    Just like many sports where Whites are clearly superior, the media ignores it.

    That is, until a token Black becomes decent at it. Hence, golf wasn't a sport until Tiger Woods showed up and did well. Then all of a sudden golf was this amazing sport.

    Tennis was a boring White sport until that cross dressing Black gay guy and his slightly less macho brother started winning. Then all of a sudden tennis was this amazing sport.

    When random Blacks started winning decathlons here and there, all of a sudden the decathlon decides "the world's best athlete" again.

    But now that order has been restored for the most part in golf and tennis and decathlon, because Whites (or at least non-full Blacks in the case of women's tennis) are once again at the pinnacle, be prepared for the media to downplay these sports once again, or accuse the White winners of oppressing Tyrone and Sharkeesha or whoever they hell they think is entitled to the title of "best."

    It seemed like he beat Eaton's record with better strength events, which Whites are clearly better than Blacks at(not that I really consider Eaton a true Negroid). It seems like the recent world record holders have been more speed type guys than power guys. I actually miss a guy with a build like Jurgen Hingsen setting the world record.

    Trae Harding called it the most consistent point scores across the events there's ever been - no weaknesses
