Terek fifth in decathlon nationals

By BRAD EMONS • OBSERVER Staff Writer • July 5, 2009

Olympic decathlete Paul Terek’s bid to earn his third trip to the IAAF World Track and Field Championships next month in Berlin fell short.

The former Livonia Franklin High and Michigan State University standout, who qualified for the 2004 Athens Summer Games, wound up fifth overall at the 2009 USA Track and Field Outdoor Championships held at historic Hayward Field at the University of Oregon in Eugene.

Earning automatic spots to represent the U.S. in Germany were Trey Hardee (Nike) and Ashton Eaton (University of Oregon), who finished one-two with 8,261 and 8,075 points, respectively.
