The decathlon is an olympic sport where olympians try to become, as its known, 'the best athlete in the world'.

The decathlon has 10 events that are all in track and field. The decathletes do five events the first day and the other five events the day after. Here's how they do it:

Day 1:

-100 Meter Dash

-Long Jump

-Shot Put

-High Jump

-400 Meter Run

Day 2:

-110 Meter Hurdles

-Discus Throw

-Pole Vault

-Javelin Throw

-1500 Meter Run

Hope this helped!

The heptathlon and the decathlon are variations of the same event, combined-events. In outdoor track and field, women do the heptathlon, consisting of seven events, and men do the decathlon, consisting of ten events. Both of the events have events in them that are power and speed related with one that is more endurance related.

The Decathlon is comprised of Ten (10) events. The Pentathlon is comprised of Five (5) events.There are a combined fifteen (15) events. However, the pentathlon's five events are also encompassed within the decathlon as well. Therefore, technically there are only Ten (10) unique events between the two competitions.

There are ten events in a decathlon. Because deca means ten so it's ten events. That's the root word for decathlon.

Most things (places, events, living creatures, etc.) do not have antonyms except for "Not + the thing". That is the case with decathlon. The opposite is "not a decathlon".

The clue's in the name; there are 10 events.
