does anyone else find it interesting that in the throwing events that when you add up the total distance for all 3 throws Bryan Clay has 141.93 and Michael Smith has 141.06. I think this is very interesting because the points turn out in Smith's favor and I know his shot value is worth more.

Hmm, what a question BJ.: If you'd have the choice how to do, whould you pick
12 m shot
38 m discus and
50 m javelin
(= a combined 100 m)
over
16 m shot
38 m discus and
45 m javellin?
= "just" a combined 99m

I would have to pick the 16m shot because javelin points are nothing until you get to 60m or so. I see your point very good point indeed.
