Hawai'i's Bryan Clay easily outpointed the field today to earn his second decathlon victory at the 36th Hypo-Meeting at Goetzis, Austria.

Clay, who was second after the first five events on Saturday, took the lead after today's first event, 110-meter hurdles, and never trailed thereafter.

He finished with 8,483 points. Romain Barras of France was second (8,297), followed by Leonel Suarez of Cuba (8,286) and Jake Arnold of the United States (8,253).

Clay, the Olympic champion, won the 100 meters, discus and javelin in the 10-event competition. The Castle High alum from Kane'ohe also won this meet in 2006.

Trey Hardee of the U.S. did not finish.
