DECATHLON

Decathlon for men is a combined event in track and field athletics, inspired by the Olympic Games in ancient Greece. In modern times, an Olympic Game since 1912, it is extremely popular around the world. Decathlon athletes are highly respected and both in the Olympic Games and in international meetings, winners of Decathlon are the most recognizable participants of the competitions.

It comprises 10 different individual competitions and is held in 2 days, 5 on each one in a specific order, as you can also see in PORTARATHLON timetable!

Timetable and Rules and Regulations

As one of the combined events in track and field athletics, the sequence by which the athletes compete is always the same:

1st day: 100m race,Long Jump, Shot Put, High Jump, 400m race.

2nd day: 100m hurdles, Discus Throw, Pole Vault, Javelin Throw, 1500m race.

In the long jump and in all the throwing competitions, the athlete is allowed 3 tries/attempts. In the high jump and the pole vault the rules and regulations of individual competitions apply. In the racing games, the athlete that makes the 2nd invalid start is excluded from the race.

Scoring

The goal of the athlete is to collect as many points as possible in each of the 7 different games. Ranking of Decathlon athletes is based on special algorithms, which calculate the athlete’s score depending on her performance.  The sum of scoring in each of the 7 games gives us the final total score of the athlete for the specific combined event.

Technical and Physical condition of High Standards

Decathlon is exceptionally demanding and strenuous: not only it demands versatile education in basic and combined training, as well as in training for high performances but it also has training particularities for athletes.

Special talent, techniques for each individual discipline and great stamina are basic parameters for athletes that take up Decathlon. It normally takes at least 4 years of training for an athlete to successfully qualify for Decathlon.
