Day 1 - Event 1 of the Decathlon - 100m sprint

Will Kunkel and Therese Vinal in the blocks for the 100m sprint.

The decathlon is ten events in two days. The winner is dubbed the best athlete in the world.

I had no idea what all ten events in the decathlon were or much less the order of which they fell.

But now I do.

WNWO's sports reporter, Therese Vinal, and I took to the UT track with track and field head coach Kevin Hadsell to show you just how difficult it truly is to become the worlds best athlete.

Over the course of the next 10 days we will show you one event a day.

First up is the first event on the first day, the 100 meter sprint.
