HEPTATHLON / DECATHLON
How it works
If it is still necessary to present them, these queen events of Athletics see complete athletes confronting each other, who, over two days, compete in 10 events for the decathlon and 7 for the heptathlon.
In each of these events, the performance achieved by the athletes is converted into points by means of the 1984 International Scoring Table, which assigns a number of points to each performance. During these events, the competitors accumulate these points and the total achieved by each athlete is used to establish the final ranking.
