Organisation

This year again, FFA gives you the opportunity to distinguish yourself in your favourite sport  with an official programme enabling everyone, sprinters as well as jumpers, to win a medal in their speciality.

To join the competition, please contact the person in charge of the event's logistic whose stand is located on the main square of your city.

People in charge of logistic in each city are:

  • Sandy for France
  • Mélody for UK
  • Jamila for Arabia


The DecaNation 2010 will be composed of 5 sports:

  • 100m
  • Long jump
  • 110m hurdles
  • Triple jump
  • Multi sports


A new sport will be available each day. Each event will be divided into 3 days of qualification phase and one Playoffs day (third place playoff) aiming at determining winners of the event.

 

During qualification events, you will be given 15 endeavours to  earn as many points as possible. Each participation will make you earn from 1 to 4 points as follows:

  • 1st  place: 4 Points
  • 2nd place: 3 Points
  • 3rd place: 2 Points
  • 4th place: 1 Point


You can access those events from 1.00 pm to 11.00 pm (CEST) every 10 minutes.

At the end of qualification events, an official ranking for each sport will be done. The 32 best athletes of each sport will be selected to take part in the Playoffs.

If two players are in a tie position, the one who'll have taken part in the less competitions will be the best ranked. If need be, a random drawing will be used to decide between the players.

Playoffs will take place at 9.00 pm (CEST).

At the end of the competition, the DecaNation 2010 official ranking will be done depending on the rankings of each sport. The 32 best players will be selected to join the grand final of the competition which will take place on Saturday, the 4th of September at 4.00 pm  (CEST).

In order to guarantee  equity during the competition, participants will be split into 4 different groups depending on their level: (1-14 / 15-29 / 30-59 / 60+). However, the DecaNation 2010 official rankings will take into account those different series.
