9/9/2019
 

INDIANAPOLIS -- Returning 2018 podium finishers Steven Bastien and Lindsay Schwartz highlight a robust team of twelve USATF athletes headed to Bernhausen, Germany for the international multi-event competition, Thorpe Cup, held September 14-15. 


Now in its 26th year, Thorpe Cup is an annual competition between the United States and Germany in which decathletes and heptathletes from each country compete for top honors. Each year the venue alternates between Germany and the United States. Athletes competed in Knoxville, Tennessee last year and Bernhausen last hosted in 2015. 


On the men’s side, third-place finisher at the 2019 Toyota USATF Indoor Championships Jack Flood will take on Germany for Team USATF along with returning Thorpe Cup athletes Steven Bastien and Charlie Card-Childers. Bastien earned the individual title last year and won the men’s decathlon with a total point score of 7980, while Card-Childers tied for first in the men’s high jump by clearing a height of 1.99m/6-6.25.


Lindsay Schwartz helped Team USATF women secure their ninth team win in 2018 (17809 points) with her second-place women’s heptathlon finish with 6050 points. Alissa Brooks-Johnson clinched second in the women’s 800m last year behind Schwartz in 2:13.60. Click here for the full 2018 recap.
