Trey Hardee: Two-Time Reigning Decathlon World Champion

Trey Hardee is the two-time, reigning World Champion in the decathlon, an honor that earns him the distinction as the world’s greatest all-around athlete. In fact, one of the defining moments of Trey’s career was during the 2011 World Outdoor Track and Field Championships, where he ran the 1,500-meter event with his arm heavily wrapped after blowing out a ligament in his elbow during his final javelin throw, an agonizing injury that would have eliminated most athletes from the competition.

The 2012 Summer Games mark Trey’s second trip to the Olympics, where he is considered the favorite for gold. Trey’s personal best of 8,790, which he set in Berlin in 2009, currently ranks behind just Dan O’Brien and Bryan Clay in the event in American history. The 28-year old lives in Austin, Texas and is a graduate of the University of Texas.
