Decathlete Sebrle Europe's number two athlete


Czech decathlete Roman Sebrle has been voted the second best European athlete of the year. Mr. Sebrle comes second only to Finnish javelin-thrower Tero Pitkamaki in the poll conducted by the European Athletic Association. This is Roman Sebrle's highest ever ranking in this poll - he came third back in 2004, having taken the Olympic decathlon title earlier that year. The results for the women's competition were released on Thursday, and saw Czech javelinist Barbora Spotakova coming seventh.
