    I imagine with Jessica Ennis winning there will be loads of interest in the heptathlon. Does anybody have a good link to how they work out points for each of the events she does?

    Accurate and concise, but not pretty!

    That's not pretty at all is it? Very interesting though.

    Thanks everyone. I fancy giving the pupils a few scenarios where Ennis does worse in an event and what she needs to throw/run next.
