Our misson: Decathlonpedia.com mission is to benefit the coaches, athletes and the decathlon enthusiasts by providing with passion filled practical resources and inspiration that would increase performance, and add value to “the world’s greatest athlete” title that is given to the Olympic decathlon champion.
Science and art of the decathlon: We will write many articles to bring ideas and inspiration to the the world of the decathlon. We believe that this unique sport is a mixture of the predictable science and the unpredictable art. We will strive to tie these two together to bring the most out of it in very practical ways. Also, we will welcome and encourage any new ideas from the readers in the comment sections.
As decathletes, our top ten values are: greatness, passion, comradery, toughness, discipline, perseverance, endurance, commitment, motivation, inspiration. We hope to impact you in the most noble ways by staying true to our values.
We recognize that most coaches and athletes learn by visual resources, so we will do our best to provide with video links and other informative and interactive tools to help your training process.
We are committed to provide with the newest combined-event updates available to the best of our ability;
Since some of us are also professional/semi-professional decathletes, we will give you insights of what it means to live a decathlon lifestyle. We will write about trainings, nutrition, best regeneration opportunities, performance mindset development and more.
