    Way more season interesting if we could only pick each athlete once season.

    Yes, I had her as captain and in the 200 and she was awarded 26 points. Too bad she didn't win both races and set meet records; I could have used the 80 points!
    Which makes this competition additionally predictable. Guess who's Captain when Bolt, Gay, Felix, VCB double up? They seem to be making this up as they go along. Way more interesting if an athlete is picked for one event only if they double.

I consider the way doublers are scored fine if it had been documented in some rules but rather silly otherwise.
    But isn't this way more fun? :wink: Having to guess the rules and having them change at any moment brings back those fond memories of childhood playground games. Where rules seemed to change per day by whom had brought the days playing ball. Go play some street basketball and the rules will change per venue or even per day on who brought the ball. :P

    I was right, apparently - doublers get points for both events. This means 3 teams in our league had the perfect score of 96 (though they don't appear to have official separate Rome results out yet...)

    7/8

    All going well right up until the last race
    I got 7/8 too. Went out on a limb and chose the youngster David Mutua in the 800m. When he made that move with 300m to go, I got excited and a bit scared. Then when he started to fade with 120m to go, I just got annoyed with him. :evil:

    Love to see the organizers' reaction if they didn't think of a tie-breaker or this happening.
    I'm hoping the perfect is higher than that

    In previous years they've generally just picked someone at random; the way things are going this year, they might well do nothing and let all the people with perfect scores assume that one of the other guys was picked at random. :wink:

    I'll be waiting on pins and needles to see if I scored 90 or 83 , because of the Felix issue.

    I think we're all in the same boat. i have no idea either and there is nothing on my team page to indicate which event I might have chosen.
