Jean-Luc Duez of France won M50 gold at Lyon and was credited with a decathlon WR even though he had a higher score earlier. Now we learn, via the Eurovets top 10 site, that Jean-Luc (now 52!) has beaten his mark again, scoring a massive 8106 on Oct. 10 in Tournefeuille, France. Any of his marks would be at or near world-class, including a 100 in 11.96, long jump of 6.26 (20-6 1/2), high jump of 1.74 (5-8 1/2), 400 in 54.88, 100 hurdles in 14.94 and 1500 in 5:05.88. I hope to learn more about him soon.

Here are marks reported in his latest dec WR, topping the M50 Eurocharts.

    Jean-Luc is not only the European indoor record holder but the WR holder in that event. I’ve c pelted against on a few occasions and attest to his athletic prowess. He is a great competitor, a gracious champion, and a good guy to boot.
