Responses

  1. Hi Jeroen,

    This might be a question that more people have, that`s why I`ll ask in English.
    I know that it`s a temporary time schedule, but why does group 3 and 4 have an other order of events than group 1 and 2? That could have effect on the performances.

    Greetings,

    Dennis

  2. Dennis,

    I’ll answer that one for Jeroen. The limitaton with these kind of events is the field inside the track. For most disciplines you have two pitches on the track where you can compete simultaneously (long jump, high jump, shot put). Of course, that saves time. With discus throw and javelin throw it is to dangerous to create two pitches at each side of the field. When you look at the time schedule on Sunday, you will see that the field is occupied all day, even with the shot put javelin-switch of group 3 and 4. When you don’t make this switch, we could not start the 10k before an estimated 22.30h.
    And honoustly, I don’t think it will effect your performance that much if you do javelin on Saturday and Shot put on Sunday. Now you know that this is the schedule, you can train this order of events for the next 4 months 🙂

    • Hello Lars,

      I understand your motivation, but is it according to the rules? In Decathlon you can’t change the order of disciplines. I think it’s the same in Double Decathlon, but I’m not sure.

      Greetings

      Klaus-Dieter

      • Hi Klaus-Dieter and Dennis,

        Thanks Lars for your explanation. The organisation has chosen to make it possible to compete for as many participants as possible, and as a result the order of events for some groups had to be changed. Otherwise much less athletes would be able to participate.

        Two years ago during the world championships in Delft we did the same. This was in agreement with the IAUM, the International Association for Ultra Multievents, so records were counting as “official” for the double decathlon organisation. For this year’s championship we are in the proces of confirming this again.

        Kind regards,
        Marnix

  3. Hi all,

    off-topic, but may be of interest to especially the Dutch participants: next Monday (Easter Monday) in Helmond: 200 metres hurdles possibility.

    Regards,

    Toine

  4. Another question about the time schedule: how is it possible to do the 10.000m with 82 participants in one heat? Is it not better to start group 1 and 3 at 18.30?

  5. We are going to run the 10.000 metres with all 84 Men participants together. We will split the track in lane 1 till 3 and 4 till 6. The fastest athletes have to run 25 laps in lane 1 till 3 and the other part have to run 23 laps and a little bit (exactly 10.000 metres) in lane 4 till 6.
    Because we split the track it will not be too busy.
    We organise it like this because this would give a fantastic atmosphere on the track when everybody is running and finishing the same time. We can create that atmosphere. It is not nice if some athletes are finished at 19.00 en some at 22.00.
    Believe me, it will be an unforgettable moment to finish 🙂

    • Jeroen, thanks for your answer. I believe you that it will be unforgettable and I trust the organization that they can handle 84 men, counting their rounds and determining their moment of finish. Dividing all in a fast and slow group will easy that. For the competition it is better to keep the men of each age category together: the 10.000 can be decisive.

      • Hi Jos, Thank you for your commend. We will take your suggestion in mind and will discuss it in the next meeting.

  6. How you’re splitting group 1 and 2??

    • We will discuss that in the next meeting of the organisation. There are some possibilities. More information follows soon.
      I think we will split group 1 and 2 on the level of the athlete. The question is if we will look at their category (neo-seniors/seniors) or we will combine all of them in the event.

      • And do you have any idea in wich group wich level will be? because if I look to the two groups, the second time schedule is more better to recuperate after some trackevents. I hope i’m in the second group

        greetz

  7. Hi Wouter,

    We will discuss that too in the next meeting.

    Jeroen

    • Jeroen,
      I still have some problems with your decision of splitting the 10.000m in a fast and a slow group. One of the basic ideas of bringing people form all over the world to one place, is to let them compete under the same circumstances. And that is not the case when you split the group in a slow and fast one. There are more differences, but for example, what if you make a miscalculation/mismeasurement in the 10.000m distance in lane 4? Do you take the 20 or 30cm form the innerline into account? If you let all the people of the same competition in one group, then the time can be incorrect, but at least they competed under the same circumstances. So please reconsider your decision.

      • Dear Jos,

        Thank you for your comments. We understand that splitting the 10.000 meters introduces an element of difference in conditions between the two groups. Having some differences is the result of organising an ultra multievent in one weekend because making a scheme includes compromises. Splitting the 10.000 meters in these two groups is one of these compromises comparable with the fact that the time to rest between different disciplines is not exactly the same for everybody. The proper calculation of the distance of lane 4 is in the hands of the officials of the event. We can guarantee you that this will be calculated with care. Furthermore the chances for every athlete are the same to qualify for the inner lanes because the selection will be done based on the 5000 meters where everybody has the same chances. I hope you are satisfied with this explanation. Looking forward to see you in the tournament, Jeroen.

  8. Time schedule updated.

    • I still prefer the second group. Timeschedule much better to recuperate.

      greetings

    • And I’m still against the 6 attemptsrule for high and pole vault.
      An atlete in shape can use more than 6 attempts to grow in the discipline.
      But I understand why.

      greetz

  9. I thought the 6 attemptsrule was only for one-day icosathlons?

    • Hi Dennis,

      You are correct that the 6 attempts rule officially only holds for the one-day event. However, the organisation has chosen to allow as much as athletes as possible to the competition. As a consequence for some groups the order of events has been changed and the 6 attempts rule is introduced for this championships. In any other icosathlon held this year (with less participants) you will probably not see this restriction, but in this special case we’ll have to do it with the 6 attempts rule.

      Enjoy your preparations,
      Marnix

  10. Jeroen,
    some remarks on the idea of ​​running together the 10000 m:
    1) for the athletes of group 3 / 4, this means running two hours after the triple jump. I hope you have enough physiotherapists to keep muscles of athletes loose, circular walk and sit for 2 hours is not conducive to tired muscles.
    2) During the course 10k position changes can happen for the final classification. But try as an athlete to monitor where your opponent is, if you were on the outdoor track run, and your opponent on the inside track. It is still a world championship!
    3) If two athletes in the same category in the 5k run together, but in the end, eg 10 seconds difference. These could be split for the 10k as they run/compete together all weekend, athletes will be happier if they were in the run.

    I hope that group 3 / 4 not long to wait to start the 10k,
    or that the groups are not split for the 10k

    • Serge,
      I agree with you, and I am still not satisfied with the reply by Jeroen.
      Jos.

  11. Hi all,
    Having competed in alot of these competitions all around the world I am actually looking forward to the atmosphere that I believe the 10000m will bring with everyone running together.
    As to some of the points being raised, I think that time management between events is apart of the event, sometimes there is no time, sometimes alot of time, you just have to deal with it the best you can (by the way I am in group 3 so I aslo have the 2 hours wait before the 10000m).
    I would also like to believe that after the “fast and slow” groups have been decided that if individuals have a request to change groups (because of battleing with an opponent for a medal etc.) that it would be considered by the organisers.
    Also having organised a world championship I know the difficulties that can arise in planning such an event and with such a huge amount of competitors taking part in Lisse it is probably even greater than in the past and so far it looks as though the committee are doing a great job and I can’t wait to compete.

    • I’m also looking forward to the competition and I also believe the committee is doing a great job, and that it will be great running all together the final distance, but it is still not clear for me why you should separate the group in a slow and a fast one. What I know is that it is not good for the competition in each group.

      • hi all,
        I have a few questions about 10k course:
        1) How do 42 athletes in three lanes start without falling? (I think max 7 and 6 in a row together)
        2) how are the athletes in the outer lanes informed of km times?
        3) suggest that it is hot, how do you care for refreshment?

  12. Hi all,
    although the 20th event of the WC is very important. Let’s start at the beginning….somewhere an official opening is announced in “Het Koetshuis”. When is this planned? It’s not in the time scedule.

    Best regards,
    Dirk Jan

  13. maybe a crazy idea! how about one !0k race with the group of athletes divided into say; 8 and set off [10]seconds apart. The stagger can be worked out at the end and based on overall position in comp or finish time from 5km. Safer, everyone running together and fair?! like i said; just an idea and something that works in Sprint triathlons where a large number of competitors need to complete a pool swim.

  14. Dear sportfriends,
    there are many thoughts that play a role in the decision how to organize a 10k for 84 athletes and there are many possible variations that one can think off. The committee has had many discussions about the pro’s and con’s of all these variations and the currrent proposal is the result of that. Feel free to call me (+31 6 170 11786) if you want more explanations about all this, but believe me, the theme has been thoroughly discussed indeed.

    Jeroen Habers

    • I talked with Jeroen yesterday and we agreed to disagree about what the guiding principles should be for making up the two groups.
      An item that remained open was how official the 10.000m is for the people in lane 4. It is not as official as for the people in lane 1, still good enough for the double decathlon statistics but for example not for national records. For other types of records it is not so clear. Maybe not so important as the DD is not such an official event by itself, but for some people it may be something to be aware of.

  15. Hello all of you!
    Finally I can post something here as well! Really looking forward to the event, allthough my preparation has not been good at all, but I’ll work that out the next two weeks! 😉 So be prepared to laugh at all running events more then 200m…….
    @Serge, Jos and everyone; don’t worry about the 10K, and especially not about the starting positions. I’m absolutely sure not everyone is as competitive as the people complaining about the 10K. I really don’t mind starting at the back and so will many think. Those 2 or 3 seconds won’t make me World Champion! And I’m sure the K’s in lane 4 will be indicated, but if not, you know you have to run (a little over) 23 laps, so just convert your time with that! And two groups on the 10K is a fantastic idea, we’ll finish this great weekend with all heroes at the same time! Imagine: the crowd goes mad, loud music, a setting sun! I really can’t think of a better end! Besides: this weekend is more about having an amazing time with athletes from all over the world, then about scoring personal bests, at least for me.
    Again, looking forward to see everyone (maybe in 8 days in Utrecht, last Track Meeting?) and good luck with the preparation everyone!
    Cheers, Marc

  16. Hi all,

    With two weeks to go, tonight I have my first double decathlon specific test competition in Heiloo, taking up shot put at 19.00h and running 3000m at 20.30h. Will I see any of you there?
    Otherwise maybe I’ll see you next Friday in Utrecht?
    And for the ones that want to practise their steeple skills, there is a steeple competition in Den Haag on Sunday the 14th. I’m still in doubt if I will participate in that, with only 5 days left to the big event. By the way, I’ve seen Simon Vroemen becoming Dutch champion for the 13th time in Amsterdam last week. He can skip the competition in Den Haag, I personally witnessed that his steeple skills are at the appropriate double decathlon level 🙂

    Have a good last two weeks of preparation,
    All the best,
    Lars Janssen

  17. I’ll be in Heiloo tonight, I think I’ll do javelin, 200m and long jump. Next week in Utrecht will be my last competition. Simon already cancelled for the Double Decathlon because he just became father, so I think the steeple-WR will last the WC in Lisse…

    • For those who still want to do a 200 hurdles for the double decathlon. On Saturday, August 13 in Kapellen in Belgium. (Half hour from Bergen op Zoom and Breda)
      http://ackape.be/index.php/2011/08/3256/

    • I am not sure if the steeple WR will last the WC in Lisse…
      Simon Vroemen cancelled, but Michiel de Ruiter (3th on the National Championships on 3000 meters Steeplechase) is added to the list. Personal best is 9.08, looks like he is good enough to try to beat the record 🙂

  18. Hi organisation and group 4 athletes,

    I noticed that new rules are published recently about height (steps) for high jump and pole vault.
    I ask the event the organisation to reconsider the pole vault steps for group 4 (now 20 cm). I kindly ask steps of 10 cm from 2.40m. You already maximezed to 6 attemps and for the older athletes being multi event athletes the steps are to large. Stating the same steps for younger and older athletes is a disadvantage for group and means scoring less points.
    So I ask you the adjust the pole vault steps for group 4 like there is a difference also in high jump for this group.

    Best regards and see you all on friday.
