Day one of the decathlon features the 100m, long jump, shot put, high jump and 400m. The retirement of Ashton Eaton, two-time world and Olympic champion, means that a new face will rise to the top in 2017.

Rico Freimuth tops the world list with his win in Ratingen, ahead of Ilya Shkurenev and Gotzis winner Damian Warner. Warner was bronze medallist in Rio, silver medallist Kevin Mayer is a starter here but has not completed a decathlon this year.

Others in the hunt include Lindon Victor, Eelco Sintnicolaas and dual Olympic bronze medallist Leonel Suarez. But it is a suddenly open event and any number of contenders may emerge after the first few events.

Not forgetting… the women’s 100m hurdles has heats in the morning and semis in the evening, the men’s 1500m and women’s 800m move to the semis, the former without Olympic champion Matthew Centrowitz, the latter without defending champion Marina Arzamasova, who were both eliminated;  on the field, we have men’s high jump and women’s discus qualifying.
