Roman Sebrle is an athlete from the Czech Republic. He is considered to be one of the best decathlon athletes of all time. Originally a high jumper, he competes in decathlon and heptathlon for team TJ Dukla Praha and is a former world record holder in the decathlon. In 2001 in Götzis he became the first decathlete ever to achieve over 9,000 points, setting the record at 9,026 points, succeeding his compatriot, Tomás Dvorák, who had scored 8,994 points two years earlier.

After placing second in the decathlon during the 2000 Summer Olympics, Sebrle won the gold medal in the 2004 Summer Olympics. Tradition dictates the winner of the decathlon holds the title of “World’s Greatest Athlete”. Sebrle has held the title five of the past seven years.
