  • Kevin Mayer en larmes après son échec au Décathlon

Le décathlonien avait même fait très forte impression lors des séries de l'épreuve du 100 mètres, portant son record personnel à 10.64 secondes d'entrée de jeu. Mais un premier essai mordu de très peu venait instiller le doute dans l'esprit du Français.

"C'est le sport. Je suis tellement déçu". On a tous droit à une faute et j'espère que ça n'arrivera plus jamais. "Je ne m'en veux pas, je me suis exprimé en longueur, ça n'a jamais été aussi loin", a-t-il poursuivi. On notera que les deux autres Tricolores en lice dans le décathlon ont eux aussi mordu leurs trois essais, perdant ainsi toute chance de bien figurer dans ces Championnats d'Europe.

Pourquoi Mayer s'est-il engagé à fond sur chaque essai plutôt que d'assurer un saut, pour éviter le zéro pointé?

Une immense désillusion. Deux heures seulement après avoir débuté le concours du décathlon ce mardi, Kevin Mayer a déjà rangé ses affaires dans son sac. "C'est le sport", a déclaré la star de l'athlétisme français abattu et au bord des larmes au micro de France Télévisions.

À Londres, Henriques avait établi le premier record du monde officiel pour les dames en 4 h 5 min 56 sec, une marque améliorée depuis d'une minute par la marcheuse chinoise Liang Rui.
