Decathlon & Heptathlon Records

The decathlon consists of 100m, long jump, shot put, high jump, 400m, short hurdles, discus, pole vault, javelin and 1500m. It was first contested at the Olympics in 1912 and has been a regular event since.

The heptathlon consists of short hurdles, high jump, shot put, 200m, long jump, javelin and 800m. It has been a part of the Olympics since 1984.

Both have been a part of the World Masters Athletics Champs since 1989.

To be valid for a record, the events for which wind readings are required must produce an average (sum of readings divided by the number of those events) wind reading of +2.0 or less.

Where Centre records are better performances than National or World records, this likely indicates that the athlete either failed to apply for the record within the application window or was unable to meet the stricter paperwork requirements. More recent records could still be in the processing stage at World or National level.

Note: Athletes move. Wellington records applicable to athletes registered to Wellington at time of performance. Island championship records applicable to athletes registered to that island at time of performance. NZ records applicable to athletes registered appropriately to NZMA at time of performance. Oceania championship records applicable to athletes registered to OMA at time of performance. World records quote national affiliation of athlete at time of performance.

Note 1: Age factor points tables were updated by World Masters in 2010 and revised again in 2015.

Note 2:  The javelin was redesigned for men in April 1986 and women in 1999 to reduce the distances the implement could travel. Additionally, in 2014 the W60-70 javelin underwent a change from 400gm to 500gm. These changes necessitated the segregation of previous records. Modifications in design (using holes, rough paint or dimples to increase tail draft) were outlawed at the end of 1991 and related records reset.

Note 3:  Records marked + require recalculation to 2015 factors. Records marked * require the individual event performances to be located to allow the recalculation to 2015 factors.
