Hypo-Meeting

Last updated

The Hypo-Meeting is an annual athletics competition that takes place in the Mösle stadium in Götzis in Vorarlberg (Austria) held in the spring (late May, early June). In its history, a total of three world records have been set: 1980 and 1982 by Daley Thompson (8648 and 8730 points), and 2001 by Roman Šebrle (9026 points). [1]

Contents

Organised by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF), it is one of the athletics meetings that make up the IAAF Combined Events Challenge. Male and female athletes compete in the decathlon or heptathlon, respectively, and points scored at the Hypo-Meeting count towards a yearly total for the parent competition.

History

In 1972, the Montfort community for athletics (Leichtathletikgemeinschaft Montfort) was founded in Götzis, Vorarlberg. [2] A year later, the community offered to hold the Austrian Multi-Discipline Championship which they ultimately did in 1975, superseding the traditional multi-discipline event in Schielleiten. [3] The first Hypo-Meeting began as a men's only contest in 1975 and a women's competition was added in 1981.

The meeting has been sponsored by the Hypo Landesbank Vorarlberg for over 30 years now, hence its name. [4]

Decathlon athletic track and field competition

The decathlon is a combined event in athletics consisting of ten track and field events. The word "decathlon" was formed, in analogy to the word "pentathlon", from Greek δέκα and ἄθλος. Events are held over two consecutive days and the winners are determined by the combined performance in all. Performance is judged on a points system in each event, not by the position achieved. The decathlon is contested mainly by male athletes, while female athletes typically compete in the heptathlon.
