The Ultimate Garden Clash Series will move to another gear on Sunday 7 June with a trans-continental combined events meeting involving the World top three Decathlon Athletes.
Decathlon world record-holder Kevin Mayer, reigning world champion Niklas Kaul and Maicel Uibo, the 2019 world championships silver medallist, the top three ranked decathletes in the world, will square off from their training bases in Montpellier, France, Mainz, Germany, and Clermont, Florida, in a unique virtual triathlon that combines strength, speed and stamina to mirror a grueling combined events competition.
The competition will begin with the pole vault where the athletes will attempt to clear 4.00 metres as many times as possible during a 10-minute period. They’ll then move on to the shot put where the challenge is to send the 7.26kg iron ball beyond a 12-metre line as often as possible, again during a 10-minute period. The triathlon concludes with a shuttle run competition in which two cones are placed 20 metres apart, with the athletes collecting points for each completed back and forth shuttle over the course of five minutes. The points scored in each event will be tallied to crown the overall winner.
