Double Decathlons And Heptathlons
8:50am 24th August 2013
Athletic world championships with a difference come to the South West for the first time this weekend.
A Double Decathlon, or Icosathlon for men, that's 20 disciplines instead of the usual 10 and Tetradecathlon for women (that's a double heptathlon) start today at the Yeovil Athletics Arena.
The International Association of Ultra Multi Events run the 2-day fixture which is in its 24th year, and its the first time in 9 years that the UK has hosted the event.
