Gunnar Nixon: World Champion Decathlete!

Travis Goepfert, Panora Linden-Panorama/UNI is one of the top field event/multi event coaches in the nation.  Goepfert solidified that opinion this week by coaching University of Arkansas freshman Gunnar Nixon  of Edmond, OK to the World Junior Championship in the Decathlon.  Nixon finished the 2 day event today with 8018 points.  Jake Stein, Australia, was 2nd with 7951.   Nixon is the national high school record holder in the decathlon and was last years Gatorade High School Track and Field Athlete off the Year.
