Daley's Decathlon (1982) TV Sports Special

Not only is the film about Daley Thompson's personal triumph in Athens, when he took the world record from his arch-rival Jurgen Hingsen, but also the Decathlon itself, from its origins in the ancient Greek Pentathlon.

Unique footage shows one of the world's greatest athletes in action, as well as a rare insight into the thoughts and tensions as he wins Gold and breaks the World Record - making him the first athlete in history to hold European, Commonwealth and Olympic gold medals simultaneously.
