Kent County Athletic Association Administration and Qualification Area

 

 


At the Combined Events Meeting I was asked to issue details of how the points were scored for all the various combined event competitions.

The Senior Men’s and Women’s competitions are scored in accordance with the IAAF Scoring Tables for Combined Events. The publication can be downloaded IAAF website in pdf format. It contains a brief history of Combined Events Competition together with details of how the points tables were developed and evolved. It contains scoring tables and formulae for an events scoring system from which the tables were prepared.

An extract from the IAAF publication showing the Formulae for IAAF Combined Events Scoring System is here.

In addition we have a number of events not included in the IAAF publication. Similar parameters have been developed for the boys events which can be similarly applied as the IAAF scoring system. Details of the parameters are here.

However, no parameters have been developed for the girls hurdle events. We have to rely on points scoring tables for these events. Details here.


 

FORMULAE FOR IAAF COMBINED EVENTS SCORING SYSTEM

For a given performance, the point score (P) is calculated using one of the

following equations:

Track events P=a*(b - T)**c [where Tis Time in seconds; e.g. 10.43 for 100 metres]

Jumps P=a*(M - b)**c [where M is Measurement in centimetres; e.g. 808 for

"LJ".]

Throws P=a*(D - b)**c [where D is Distance in metres; e.g. 16.69 for Shot]

a, b and c are parameters whose values are listed below. * is the mathematical

sign meaning "multiplied by ", and ** is the mathematical sign meaning "raised to

the power of".

Note: The value of P (points) must be rounded down to a whole number after

calculation (e.g. 123.999 becomes 123).

NOTE: Points for manual times in events up to 400 metres are calculated either

by adding the standard adjustment factor to the time (i.e. 0.24 sec. for events

below 400 metres, 0.14 sec. for 400 metres) or by subtracting the factor from the

"b" parameter. There are no adjustments for events above 400 metres.

Example (100m Men):

10.40 (auto) for 100m is calculated as P=25.4347*(18.00 - 10.40)**1.81 = 999

10.4 (manual) for 100m is calculated either as P=25.4347*(18.00 - 10.64)**1.81 = 942

or as P=25.4347*(17.76 - 10.4)**1.81 = 942
