Wha t happened to Ashley Moloney in the decathlon?


Ash Moloney won Australia’s first ever Olympic medal in decathlon. Fellow Aussie Cedric Dubler really pushed Moloney in the final 1,500m race for him to secure bronze. Dubler placed 20th overall. Ten events in two days it was an incredible effort from both of our Australians and the support they showed for each other over other two days was quite special.

Good morning!

Hi everyone, we’re in the home staight now, aren’t we?

Should be another big day today after yesterday’s shennanigans.

I’m still not sure I’ve processed yesterday. Objectively it was a great day, with two gold medals, a silver, a couple of bronzes.

But with three out of our four teams failing in their key clashes, it was also a bit flat. 

Anyway, there’s lots to look forward to today, not least of which is our women’s beach volleyballers going for gold against USA.
