This event requires you complete over 2 days, the 100m, 400m, 1500m and 110m hurdles, pole vault, high jump and long jump plus discus, shot put and javelin. He recently completed a hat trick in Gotzis, Austria winning the Hypo Meeting decathlon for the third time.
Damian will compete at the Vancouver Sun Harry Jerome Track Classic on June 28th at Percy Perry Stadium in the 110m hurdles. He has won the Canadian Championships in the 110m hurdles in 2014 and 2015 and recorded his personal best of 13.27 seconds over the 10 barriers.
Last year the Canadian Champion was Johnathan Cabral who went on to take 6th in the Rio Olympic Games who has best of 13.35. The University of Oregon graduate took the silver in the 2015 NCAA Championships in the 110m hurdles just behind Omar McLeod, who won the Olympic gold medal for Jamaica in Rio.
