Scoring at the DL meets is 4-2-1. Then it doubles in Z and B to 8-4-2.

(not that anybody but the athletes who are in line to win seem to care much: talk about an idea that has gained zero traction with the public.... but I digress)

Does making the final meet worth so much help or hurt overall? I'm thinking the latter, at least when I look at the mDT. Harting didn't enter, but I can see why: he has almost no chance of winning. Even if he wins, if Kanter gets 2nd or 3rd, K wins the overall.

Harting (like many German throwers) apparently has no interest in the DL, and competed only once (winning in Birmingham). Should somebody who was in only 1 of the 6 leadins really have a mathematical chance to win? Kanter was a good soldier, with a two wins a 2nd and a 3rd, yet he could still lose the overall t0 Harting.

That doesn't make sense to me if you're trying to build a SERIES with some overall value.
