The two-day battle through seven heptathlon disciplines reached an exciting crescendo on Saturday (19) with Damian Warner earning his second global title in little more than seven months.
The Olympic champion from Canada is now the world indoor champion and stands second on the world indoor all-time list with 6489. It was a hard-fought victory, though, as the 32-year-old was pushed the entire way by rising Swiss talent Simon Ehammer.
Warner put together his best ever indoor series, starting with a 6.68 PB in the 60m. But three other men were close behind, also setting PBs: Australia’s Olympic bronze medallist Ashley Moloney ran 6.70, Ehammer clocked 6.72 and US indoor champion Garrett Scantling ran 6.84.
