DECATHLON SCORING TABLES PDF

Competitors earn points for their performance in each discipline and the overall winner is the man who accrues the most points. The first day consists of in order : m, long jump, shot put, high jump and m. History The forerunner of the modern decathlon was the pentathlon, a regular feature of the Ancient Olympics that comprised the long jump, discus, javelin, sprint and wrestling. Various versions of the event re-emerged in the 19th century to determine all-around prowess and a combined events competition was held at the Olympic Games. But the first decathlon that resembles the current format was held in , with the inaugural Olympic Games decathlon — famously won by the legendary Jim Thorpe — taking place a year later in Stockholm.

The first Olympic tables adopted were also linear functions; they were based not on world or national records, but, rather, on the Olympic records for each of the individual events.

The tables were soon updated with the Olympic records — and the universally disliked extension of event scores to three decimal places was discarded in favor of integer scores — and the tables were used thus in the next four Olympiads.

This scoring system implemented vast changes, with the following features: [3] 1 All of the individual events were scored with exponential functions , rather than the linear functions that had characterized all decathlon scoring tables to date. Zero points corresponded to the performances of untrained schoolchildren, and point performances corresponded closely to world records. All of the tables remained progressive in nature; in fact, the progressive character of every one of the ten tables increased.

Specifically, the tables conferred a distinct advantage on decathletes who were specialists in individual events, with passing, but not stellar, performances in the other events, while putting well-rounded athletes at a relative disadvantage.

The IAAF working committee therefore met in in Prague to develop improved tables, putting forth the following nine principles, which still stand today: [4] The decathlon scoring tables should differ from those used for individual event scoring. The scores for different events should be comparable, in a manner such that equal skill levels in different events however difficult it is to define such a concept are rewarded with equal point levels.

The new tables should be one of the following: modified versions of the existing ones, linear in all events, or slightly progressive in all events. The tables should be applicable to all levels of performance, from youth to elite. Men and women should have different tables.

The new tables should be applicable now and in the future. The total scores using the new tables for the top world-class athletes should remain approximately the same about points. As much as possible, the new tables should ensure that a specialist in one event cannot overcome top performances in the other events.
