Decathlete Leo Neugebauer: Directly at the top of the world – sport

With his fifth place in Budapest, decathlete and student Leo Neugebauer underlines that there are many paths to success in athletics – even off the steep promotion ladder in Germany.

Every track and field athlete has their own way of warming up their body and mind for the big day. The discus thrower Sandra Perkovic shouts into the silence of the waiting room in the stadium, also to plant a grain of respect in the minds of the competition. Others talk to themselves for a long time (triple jumper Yulimar Rojas), animate the audience like an orchestra conductor (high jumper Gianmarco Tamberi) – and others do it like the 23-year-old decathlete Leo Neugebauer.
