World champion Kevin Mayer set a new world record in the decathlon with 9,126 points at the Decastar meet on Sunday to eclipse Ashton’s Eaton previous mark of 9,045.

The Frenchman threw a personal best of 71.90 meters in the javelin in the penultimate event to leave him with the relatively simple task of needing to finish inside 4 minutes 49 seconds in the 1500 meters.

The 26-year-old cruised home in 4:36 to become just the third decathlete to surpass the 9,000-point barrier, joining double Olympic champion Eaton and Czech icon Roman Sebrle.
