Traditionally, the title of the “World’s Greatest Athlete” has been given to the man who wins the decathlon.
Dean Macey, or the Dean Machine, as he was so frequently referred to, is one of the unique individuals to have achieved this accolade, doing so at the 2006 Commonwealth Games.
Dean would undoubtedly have finished his career with a host of additional World, Olympic and Commonwealth Medals if it had not been so heavily blighted by injury.
Yet, his ability to continually battle back to fitness consolidated his position, not just as one of the very best athletes on the globe, but as someone with a unique level of determination and mental strength.
