Michiel de Ruiter winning the 10.000 meters in 32.21

It was a long weekend with good weather to optimally perform in an Ultra-Multievent. And 84 athletes did perform well by finishing the Icosathlon for Men or the Tetradecathlon for Woman. Some of them were a highlight on the track to be proud on, like Michiel de Ruiter. On Saturday he tried to break the World Record on the 3000 meters Steeplechase but his time of 9.39,64 was 10 seconds too slow for breaking the World Record of Syrjälä Teppo from Finland. On Sunday he wanted to try it again on the 10.000 meters and he did it with success. In an amazing race he finished in a time of 32.21, exactly 40 seconds faster than the old World Record of the Japanese athlete Ban Takuma.

Also decathlete Joan Estruch (Spain) tried to break a World Record, this time on the 110 meter hurdles. His time of 15,32 was fast but not fast enough to break the record from Kaseorg Indrek in 1990 (14,96). Maybe if there would not have been a headwind of 2,1 m/s he would have been able to break that record. With a total score of 10.824 he was the best Men athlete on the track. The level in Lisse was high with 8 Senior athletes above the 10.000 points.

The best Woman athlete was Sonja Beba from Germany. With a score of 7740 points she won in the Woman category.

Participants lists

As all of you know a lot of people subscribed for the World Championships. Therefore it takes a lot of time to select and discuss the participants. We decided to expand the number of Men participants to 84 instead of 72.

We are proud we can host 84 Men and 24 Woman athletes but unfortunately, we must also dissapoint 29 other athletes. Everybody can trust the lists, since they are accurately made.

All athletes on the waiting lists have a real chance to participate because history shows us that there where a lot of cancellations each year (Delft 2009 more than 30). So don’t give up!

You can find all the participants lists here.

World record Double Decathlon beaten by Joe Detmer!

The new World record holder, Joe Detmer!

The American athlete Joe Detmer set a new world record on the Double Decathlon. Hope to see this athlete next year on the World Championships in the Netherlands!


The decathlon All-American during his collegiate career at Wisconsin tallied 14,571 points in his 20 events, shattering Kip Janvrin’s world double decathlon record by 386 points. Janvrin, a 2000 U.S. Olympian in the decathlon, had set the mark of 14,185 at the 2002 World Championships in Finland.

Detmer opened the competition with a bang Friday morning, clocking 10.93 seconds for the 100-meter dash and long jumping 7.30. Both marks were the best ever posted in a double decathlon. Some of Detmer’s other exceptional performances included a 2:02.23 in the 800, a 1.98 high jump, a 50.43 in the 400, a 15-11 pole vault, a 53.83 in the 400 hurdles and a 4:26.66 in the 1,500.
