• Estonian Erm establishes decathlon lead after three events in Gavle

The decathlon began with championship bests in both the 100m and the long jump on the third morning of competition at the Gavle 2019 European Athletics U23 Championships.

Fresh from setting a lifetime best of 20.79 in the 200m last week, Manuel Eitel took advantage of a 1.9 m/s tailwind to stop the clock at 10.42 - his second fastest time in a decathlon - ahead of Artem Makarenko (10.70) and France’s Makenson Gletty (10.73).

American-based Estonian Johannes Erm began his day with a lifetime best of 10.73 to finish fourth in the same heat as Eitel before flirting with the eight metre-line in the long jump, reaching out to a championship best of 7.97m which was only one centimetre shy of his lifetime best.
