      was sorta joking about the NFL...my real point was the profundity of a human being who can run so fast and throw so far. The dude is a specimen.

        >eldy...

        using your formulas: given a 183 discus and 10.3 100 meters, what
        >would his optimum pick in the NFL draft be?<


        i'm wrong

        not an answer to your exact question 1/2er, but you'll get "fun" out of this link:



        http://www.walter-fendt.de/ph11e/projectile.htm



        initial ht. of release : ? head ht.

        angle shoud always be ~ 45

        speed looks anywhere between 20 - 30


        ht. difference = difference in length of throw

        ( except a 6'6 guy has longer arms than a 5'10 one & shoud throw it further all other factors being equal

        someone Ix as i'm not in a state to look at SAT problems )

          You're right. The previous decathlon-best for the DT was held by Norbert Demmell at 55.14m. Clay does seem to have very similar strong/weak areas to Huffins. I wouldn't bet against him taking the decathlon-best for the 100m either (Huffins' 10.22).

          Mojo - What does your hubby make of Clay's decathlon so far?

              “Clay, the heavy favorite in the 10-event competition with the absence of injured Tom Pappas, threw 183 feet, 3 inches to break the world mark of 180-5 (55.00 m) set by Razvigor Yankov of Bulgaria in 1979.”

              I wonder what their source was it differs from Jon's and appears to be out of date.

              EDIT: Or is Jon's source incorrect? This web site has Yankov 55.00 m as the decathlon record too. It also has the records for the other events.

                  this is telling:

                  "His throw, in the seventh event, came in a brisk crosswind in Day 2 of competition at Home Depot Center."

                    I had the wrong country, but the correct distance! I sometimes surprise even myself with my ability to recall almost totally useless track & field trivia! Now if I had a $1 for every bit of it stored in my billions of neurons, I'd be worth....

                      The decathlon individual event records can be found here (great decathlon site):
                      http://www.decathlon2000.ee/eng/10athlon.php?id=30

                      It lists Demmell as the holder with 55.14m (contradicting that other page from the same site!). By the looks of it, Yankov was more of a thrower first, decathlete second. I can't even find a Decathlon PB for him.

                      Re: Demmel, the previous decathlon DT record holder, he is primarily a discus thrower with a best of 58.38m who completed a few decathlons (best of 8011 set in 1995). He's still competing today at age 42!

                        These are the equivalent pages. Looks like the english page does not have the records anymore. I suspect the Estonian pages are not updated as regularly as the English pages.

                        Just to complicate things:

                        http://www.decathlon2000.ee/eng/statistics.php?id=29

                        this page also has 55 m as the best. It has the top ten in each event. A good resource but possibly out of date?

                          55.87 is no big deal. It's only worth 49.69 basic.

                          //No idea what I'm talking about. Just sick of the basic.

                            Given the crosswind, you may actually be right.

                              The 55.14m by Demmel is set in 1995 where he did not finish all events at all,so the record belongs to Yankov previously :
