Masters Decathlon (2)

If Masters swimming offers an excellent way to compete against your peers no matter your age, our decathlon competition is great for those who want to compete in different disciplines.  As the name suggests, you have to compete in a combination of ten different strokes and distances, and there are prizes for the top male and female Scottish masters swimmers over the year.

If you're a SASA registered swimmer, you'll be automatically entered into the decathlon competition when you complete your first race during the year and we'll continue to total up your points throughout the year - we'll keep track of your score so you don't have to!  

Although the decathlon offers a great way to compete against others, often our competitors find it a great way to keep track of their performances over time - meaning they can set their own goals from improving points in one particular discipline, or improving their overall score. 

It's fun,  free to enter, we do all the hard work and you can win prizes - what's not to like about the Scottish Masters Decathlon!

Scottish Masters Decathlon Results 2015

A summary of the results of the Men’s and Women’s 2015 Decathlon can be found on this page (right hand side). Congratulations to the winners who will be presented with their Trophy at the Masters Ceilidh being held at the Chesters Hotel in Aberdeen on Sat 23rd April following the Scottish Masters National Championships being held at ASV Aberdeen.

The 2016 Decathlon is now underway and all swimmers are automatically entered using their results recorded over the year in all Scottish Masters events. Full rules and details are available on SS website. A look at the results clearly shows the advantages in having the full complement of 10 qualifying events Entries are still open for the Scottish!

It is very interesting to see that the top Scottish Women score considerably higher points against the International comparison than the Men, yet there are 218 Men recorded against 158 Women.

It is a good benchmark on your individual performance level by noting your total points as well as your average points over the 2015 season and trying to improve on that for this season. Average points scored appear to have lifted over 2014 so it appears the quality of swims is rising. Keep up the good work.

Thanks to John Maclean for the work in recording and compiling these.
