GALLANT PERFORMANCE
A day after being released from quarantine, fifth in the decathlon at London 2017 World Championships. A number of athletes were hit by a viral gastroenteritis that swept through the Canadian team’s hotel. Spent 48 hours in quarantine and had just one light practice on Thursday afternoon before competition began on Friday. Coach Les GRAMANTIK (CAN), said: "Damian exhibited incredible strength to be able to compete. His energy system was greatly compromised so most of the events with power application were negatively affected… I know we will be back strong after this experience." (sportsnet.ca, 12 Aug 2017)


CONSECUTIVE PODIUMS
The London 2017 World Championships first time he had missed a medal at a major decathlon championship since London 2012 Olympic Games. Bronze at 2013 world championships, gold at Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, gold at 2015 Pan American Games, silver at 2015 world championships, bronze at Rio 2016 Olympic Games. (iaaf.org, Oct 2017)  


BIG CHANGE
In December 2016, left his coaching set-up in London, Ontario, and moved to Calgary-based multi-event coach Les GRAMANTIK (CAN). "I spoke to a lot of people - Michael SMITH, Ashton (EATON) and Brianne’s (THEISEN-EATON) coach (Harry MARRA), Les, my coaches in London, family - and came to the conclusion it was best to make a move." In May 2017, he said: "I think Les and I have meshed fairly well so far. We’re still in the early phase, learning what we like and don't. It’s a little different with one coach. It has advantages, but so did having four coaches. I really kind of miss that aspect."
