Time records (1)

There are some unusual world records for the Decathlon like a 30, 60 or 100 minutes decathlon. Of course we know about a 2 days world record, but what if decathletes their bests are counted over a whole year performing at their best? What if you can show your skills as a decathlete in let’s say 8 months. The start would be the indoor season till the end of the summer. Many things can go wrong in a decathlon like to much head wind in the sprinting, cold and rainy weather, a cloud-burst during the high jump or the pole vault. This is only for statistical purpose of course and to have some insight in what year this athletes probably were in the best shape ever of their live. This  article appeared before on Decathlon 2000 a few years ago and is now enlarged and updated. Here are some statistics, feel free to correct.

World records for decathlon:

1) 30 min

7029 Jens Schulze (GER) 1981

2) 60 min

7897 Robert Zmelik (CZE) 1992

3) 100 min

7989 Roman Sebrle (CZE) 2003

4) 1 day

7989 Roman Sebrle (CZE) 2003

Note: Roman Sebrle did his one day record in a remarkable 100 minutes (meaning that you start - at the end - inside your 100 minutes with the 1500). For a world record spread over the hole day: 6417 John Kenneth Doherty (USA) 1929. Better and also in one day but during an Icosathlon: 6631 Frederic Xhonneux (BEL) 2015.

Very good article !
For the one-day record, I believe we have better than 641è by John Kenneth Doherty. Bastien Auzeil realized 7345 points in Arles in 2015 April 20th), during the Irondeca. Detail :
11''44 - 6.79 - 14.46 - 1.80 - 51''50 - 14''75 - 43.63 - 4.95 - 54.61 - 5'08''15
