Damian Warner put on an impressive display in the Men’s decathlon

Warner was far in the lead on the run up to the 1500-metre race. Even his fifth place finish was more than enough to secure the Gold

This is Warner’s first outing this season since a leg injury. This marked the sixth medal for Team Canada on day six.

Warner was the bronze medallist at last year’s world championships. He hadn’t competed yet this season due to a leg injury.

Other golds came courtesy of swimmer Ryan Cochrane (men’s 1500 metres), women’s mountain biker Catharine Pendrel, weightlifter Marie-Ève Beauchemin-Nadeau (women’s 75 kg), and wrestlers Erica Wiebe (women’s 75 kg) and Korey Jarvis (men’s 125 kg)

With other events ongoing Canada could look to add more before the night is over.

Heading into day seven Team Canada look to move further ahead in the medals table from hosts Scotland
