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:
100mH, High Jump, Shot Put, 200m
Long Jump, Javelin, 800m
