How it Calculates the Results

The decathlon calculator uses specific formulas to compute the score for each event based on the input values. The sum of these individual event scores gives the total decathlon score.

Formulas and Scoring

1. 100 meters: score = 25.4347 * (18 - time)^1.81

2. Long Jump: score = 0.14354 * (distance * 100 - 220)^1.4

3. Shot Put: score = 51.39 * (distance - 1.5)^1.05

4. High Jump: score = 0.8465 * (height * 100 - 75)^1.42

5. 400 meters: score = 1.53775 * (82 - time)^1.81

6. 110 meters Hurdles: score = 5.74352 * (28.5 - time)^1.92

7. Discus Throw: score = 12.91 * (distance - 4)^1.1

8. Pole Vault: score = 0.2797 * (height * 100 - 100)^1.35

9. Javelin Throw: score = 10.14 * (distance - 7)^1.08

10. 1500 meters: score = 0.03768 * (480 - time)^1.85


The calculator is based on standard scoring rules for men and may not be accurate for women or other categories. It also does not handle extreme input values gracefully, so input values should be within reasonable ranges.
