Combined Athletics

In the combined events the heptathlon for women and the decathlon for men athletes compete in a series of track and field events over two days. Points are based upon their finishes in each event, and the person with the most points wins.

There is nothing more gruelling in athletics than these multi-discipline events and the sight of the modern-day sporting gladiators vying for medals will be sure to bring the City of Manchester Stadium to its feet.
