Last updated: 17 September 2018

Born: 10 February 1992. Coach: Bertrand Valcin.

 

The third oldest of four brothers, Mayer was exposed to sport from as old as he can remember. His father and mother excelled as national standard athletes in skiing and tennis, respectively. Older sibling Sebastian is a leading freestyle skier.

Mayer himself played tennis, rugby and handball and although he was accomplished in all fields and enjoyed the competition, he grew bored at the repetitive nature of the training.

He first tasted athletics aged 14 and started out as a middle-distance runner and a high jumper. “When I tried training for many events, I found it was not as boring as training for other sports,” he adds. “I didn’t want to do just one event, so that’s why I moved to the decathlon.”

With natural body awareness and a gift for quickly picking up technical skills, he made rapid progress. In 2008, aged just 16, he left his hometown to head to Montpellier to be coached by Bertrand Valcin and within less than a year was crowned world U18 champion in the eight-discipline octathlon. His success in Bressanone came as a huge surprise, but in many respects it unlocked the key to his future success.

Under Valcin’s guidance, the next year Mayer secured the world U20 decathlon title in Moncton and 12 months later was crowned European junior champion.

Aged just 20, he posted a stunning PB of 8447 in Brussels just a month before the London 2012 Olympic Games to raise expectations he could potentially earn a medal on his Olympic debut. Yet Mayer performed well under-par in the British capital, finishing a distant 15th with a score of 7952.

Mayer, however, refused to be too downcast by his London experience and vowed to learn from the disappointment.

In 2013 he finished fourth at the IAAF World Championships in Moscow, just 66 points shy of a podium position. The next year he secured a silver medal at the European Championships in Zurich.

A glute injury kept him out of the 2015 World Championships, but he vowed to return in 2016.

Amid a blizzard of PBs in Rio, Mayer applied the sort of pressure the all-conquering Ashton Eaton had not experienced during a five-year period of total dominance on the global combined events scene. He finished just 59 points adrift of Eaton with a huge PB of 8834 to take the silver medal.

Eaton retired at the end of 2016 and Mayer wasted no time in establishing himself as the world’s best decathlete. At the start of 2017 he won the European indoor heptathlon title with a continental record of 6479 and then went on to win the world title in London.

Mayer became the first athlete in history, man or woman, to win world titles in combined events at the U18, U20 and senior level.

Seven months later, Mayer won the world indoor title in Birmingham, joining an exclusive group of just four men to have concurrently held world indoor and outdoor titles.

Given he is only 26 years of age and is still rapidly improving, it seems Mayer will continue to go from strength to strength.
