after day one pappas leads the decathlon with 4691, a score only o' brien or huffins could match after day one. if he does a decent job tomorrow he will win and pr, if he does very well he will break 8800.
He's got 8700+ potential easily now, especially if he runs faster than 5:00 like he did in Gotzis. He would have pred by a lot if he could have just run 4:45. For as good as an athlete he is, 5:00 is really very poor. But, now it looks like he'll be able to give Seberle a close competition.
