What is Heptathlon?

If there are only 2 things you remember about heptathlon…

1. It is only 1 sport (track and field), consisting of 7 events (no cycling, or swimming, or shooting!)

2. The 7 events are always in the same order, and take place over two consecutive days.

If you remember the above, then you’re ahead of the game.


If you want to impress your friends; the order is:

Day 1:

100mH, High Jump, Shot Put, 200m

Day 2:

Long Jump, Javelin, 800m

  1. I just want to wish you all the best at the Olympics! I am a Londoner (ON!) and I am completely inspired. Your accomplishments to date are amazing. I am a mom, too…and the juggling you must do to keep up training is remarkable….quite the daily “hurdles’! I just ran my first marathon at the ripe age of 40. I have certainly learned that determination and motivation rule our minds…and you have mastered it. Congrats and Good Luck!!
