Turner concluded the track season in style recently, capturing the gold medal in the decathlon at the 2016 NACAC Track & Field Championships in San Salvador, El Salvador.

He did so in record-breaking fashion, finishing the gruelling 10-event competition with 7,601 points.

Competing in three decathlons in 2016, Rostam Turner improved on his overall points total each time.

In Chula Vista, CA, he was third overall with a points total of 7,466 while establishing personal best performances in seven of the 10 events.

Representing Team Canada at the Pan American Cup in Ottawa, he won a Pan Am silver medal and was named 2016 national champion, with a score of 7,565 points.

The decathlon includes four track and six field events.

Events include:

  • 100 metres
  • 400 metres
  • 1500 metres
  • 110 metre hurdles
  • Long jump
  • High jump
  • Pole vault
  • Shot put
