Maybe the sadistic Decathlon gods didn't get the memo and forget to schedule their monthly torture sessions a week early.

Standoff un-stood! Sat?

Left some room there for the great Sag to break the tie.

Great score, Ruby.

Rooting for the Captain to close out the year with a score above 60k.

Thanks JMK for all the work!

Congrats Everyone who takes part in these. It has been a blast being able to be here more consistently this year. Happy Holidays everyone, stay safe out there!

Now time to turn my brain off until the hectic holidays are over, and enjoy leading two categories (until Nemesis plays his final round)...

LOL @ Nem, two minutes later. Well done. What is your average decathlon brainoff this year? Nearly 2000? You've got mad skills, man! Kevin Mayer who?

Excellent battle, Sag. 3rd time since August we've been separated by less than a question after 30, this time I got you by a sneeze.

Who's Kevin Mayer?

I didn't quite reach 60k mainly due to a ferocious set of Music questions, closely followed by Art.  It's hard and getting harder, you know.  It's happened only 28 times in the 10+ years of the Decathlon, and only 6 times since the reorganisation in March '13.  All the Fates have to align to make it happen.

No PBs this month due to the aforementioned Music and Arts, but thaibob and philgreek both achieved their highest placements.  I reckon that a lot of us have improved significantly this year.  When I compile and post the 2018 averages you'll be able to check for yourselves.

Thanks to everyone for being such great competitors, and special thanks to JMK for organising all the events.

There's a factacular topic for BB to beat you at Captain. Kevin Mayer is the World Decathlon champion - that's the unimportant athletics one; not the Factacular one which is you.

Thanks for the report and congratulations to you and BB.

Thanks JMK for the tournament.

I was as up to date as Ashton Eaton, but had missed the new record set in September.

The updated statistics for 2018 can be found here:

Decathlon Statistics 2018

There are tabs for each year along the bottom of the screen, then the All-Time figures, and then the top ten scores in each of the categories.

It's in Google Docs and everyone should be able to access it. If not, please PM me and I'll see what I can do.
