Our third matchup in Round 1 features Damian Warner's Canadian decathlon record vs. Ellie Black's 5 Pan Am medals
Twenty-five-year-old Damian Warner competed in two decathlons in the span of a month and set the Canadian record at both meets. At the Pan Am Games, he closed the competition with an impressive personal best in the 1,500, beating his old mark by four seconds and securing the gold medal along with the national and meet records with a score of 8,626.
But that was just a tune-up for Warner. In August, on a bigger stage at the world championships, he broke his Canadian record with a score of 8,695. Only American Ashton Eaton, who set a new world record, stood ahead of Warner on the podium in Beijing.
Going up against Warner's Canadian record is Ellie Black's multimedal showing at the Pan Am Games.
The 19-year-old dominated Toronto 2015 by pulling in five medals in artistic gymnastics: gold for her balance beam routine, gold in the floor exercise, gold in women's all around, silver in the team event and bronze in vault.
Black was the most decorated Canadian at the Pan Am Games, showing an incredible bounce-back from breaking her ankle in the 2012 London Olympics.
