All the talk in the Marathon post suddenly broought in Decathletes, but let's remember:

As great as these Decathletes are, the Decathlon is ONE event. So my stat project for someone is: take the 100th best performer in any given year in each of the 10 events in the Decathlon, and what is the total score ? I wish I had the inclination to find it out myself ! Or maybe the 50th best ?
