Britain’s Daley Thompson missed breaking the decathlon world record by one point when he won the Olympic Games but a revision of the scoring tables the following year increased his score slightly and he became the new world record holder retrospectively!

As an exercise, we could consider a simple change that is motivated by physics.

Archived from the original on 28 September The IAAF working committee therefore met in in Prague to develop improved tables, putting forth the following nine principles, which still stand today: Retrieved 26 October Day 1 metres Long jump Shot put High jump metres Day 2 metres hurdles Discus throw Pole vault Javelin throw metres How to Calculate Decathlon Points Decathlon points are calculated using the following formulas: Decathlon Decathlon is a combined event in athletics with ten events.

It contains some biases. Register for our mailing list. The women’s heptathlon works in exactly the same way but with three fewer events m hurdles, high jump, shot, m, long jump, javelin and m.


Decathlon: the Art of Scoring Points :

The quantity B gives the cut-off time at and above which you will score zero points and T is always less than B in practice — unless someone falls over and crawls to the finish! And this illustrates the basic difficulty with points systems of any sort — there is always a subjective element that could have been chosen differently. If we do that and pick the best A and B values to fit the accumulated performance data as well as possible then the sports tabels Wim Westera has calculated that we get an interesting change in the top ten decathletes.

In order to combine the results of these very different events – some give times and some give distances – a points system has been developed. All of the tables remained progressive in nature; in fact, the progressive character of every one of the ten tables decathlkn.

Decathlon points table

The distances here are all in metres and the times in seconds. Since the table has been the following:.

On day one, the m, long jump, shot putt, high jump and m are contested. It is measured in seconds for track events, in meters for throwing events and in centimeters for jumping events. After World War IIthe Finnish tbles Swedish athletics federations joined forces to draft scoring tables appropriate for Olympic athletes’ improved postwar performances.


Calculate points Calculate results. Decathlon is a combined event in athletics with ten events. By contrast reducing a slow m run by 10 seconds has a big impact.

Decathlon Scoring System & Formula: How Does it Work?

What would happen if the points tables were changed? He is Professor in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge, and lectures widely on the public understanding of maths and science.

On day two, the competitors face the m hurdles, discus, cecathlon vault, javelin and, finally, the m. Zero points corresponded to the performances of untrained schoolchildren, and point performances corresponded closely to world records.

The decathlon events fall into two categories: Retrieved from ” https: Since the table has been the following: All of the earliest attempts at formalizing decathlon scoring, from the first formal submission prepared by the U. It is the most physically demanding event for athletes.

In our experimental ST scoring scheme above they were multiplied together. By the early s, more problems had been pointed out with the then-current scoring tables. You score zero points for a distance equal to or less than B.
