Note that originally points were calculated from times given by tenths of second. Where available, hundreths have been restored in these results and scores recalculated, but original ranks remain. Note also, that it is not official.

Campbell's hurdle time stands out. Using the 1985 score book, he gained 106 points on the next best hurdle time. Prompts a question.....what is the biggest point difference in a top level decathlon for a single event, between the top mark and the next best mark?

Torbjörn Lassenius has made one more decathlon in 1960 and two decathlons in 1961, too.
