IAUM athlete of the year 2013

IAUM athlete of the year 2013

IAUM athlete of the year 2013Congratulations to Raimo Westerhof and Jérôme D’Heygere. After exactly one week of voting for the IAUM men athlete of the year they ended up with the same number of votes (211 each).

Raimo set a great performance in breaking the Dutch record Icosathlon of Marnix Engels getting a score of 12.242 points. At his first Ultra Multievent he set the 7th best performance of this century.

Marnix also lost his World Record indoor because of the performance of the Belgian Jérôme D’Heygere who set a score of 8466 points in the Indoor Tetradecathlon.

Hopefully both athletes will compete against each other on the European Championships in Lodi (Italy) in September 2014.

The ‘IAUM woman athlete of the year 2013’ is the German athlete Maren Schott. On the outdoor Tetradecathlon just 2 woman in history set a better pointscore. Indoor now she is the new World Recordholder with a score of 7869 points.
The 37 years old athlete also broke the World Record Indoor W35+ performing with senior weights as well as the World Record Outdoor W35+ (9530 points) at the World Championships in Yeovil last year. Hopefully she will be at the European Championships in Lodi in 2014 to improve her score again.

Principle participation :

Everyone can participate to the ultra multievents. Athletes (Juniors, Seniors & Masters) from any level are welcome !

All track events must be completed. This means that a participant who doesn’t finish a track event or become disqualified is not allowed to continue the multievents.

The date of birth is required for each entry.
Extra Rule for Ultra Multievents :

A competitor has only six (6) attempts total in High jump and Pole vault during icosathlon/tetradecathlon.

IAUM’s Categories :

There are 3 main categories in the IAUM’s competitions :  1) Juniors   2) Seniors   3) Masters
Each main category is divided into several categories :
1) U20
2) Seniors (Senior Men / Senior Women) & U23
3) M35, M40, M45, M50, M55, M60, M65, M70, M75, M80, …

There is no category M30 (from 30 to 34 years old) ! If an athlete is 34 years old, he is in the senior category.

Criteria categories :

1) The Juniors categories (till U20) are calculated using their year of birth.

2) The Seniors categories are divided into 2 categories : U23 & Seniors. Each athlete U23 is classified in the category U23 AND in the Seniors category too. The U23 category is calculated using their year of birth.

3) The Masters categories (from M35) are calculated using their date of birth.

It’s not possible to change of category if an athlete has his birthday during the second day of the competition. Each age is calculated during the first day of the competition.

Before the competition, all athletes who are not seniors have the opportunity to participate in the Senior categories with the right implements (for example, a man M40 can be SM with the height of 110m hurdles to 106,7 cm).

Example :  

Competition : 10-11th April 2010

- If an athlete was born in 1991 (whatever month), he is 19 years = category U20
- If an athlete was born in 1988 (whatever month), he is 22 years old = categories U23 & SM/SW
- If an athlete was born the 10th April 1975, he is 35 years old = category M35/W35
- If an athlete was born the 11th April 1975, he is 34 years old = category SM/SW

Calendar publishing – 2014

Due to the large number of questions about the 2014 calendar today we published the calendar with the latest information. By the end of 2013 we hope to have the calendar completely confirmed.

The winter season will start with the 8th Helsinki’s Indoor Tetradecathlon for men and woman. Our goal was to organize in 2014 the Indoor World Championships but unfortunately we did not find a host for this meeting. If you are interested in organizing this championship you can take contact with iaum1981@live.com. The possibility to upgrade the meeting in Helsinki to the World Championships is still open.

In summertime we will organize for the first time in history 4 Continental Championships instead of just 1 World Championship. These Championships will be held in Italy, Japan, USA and Australia. The European Championships in Italy are fully confirmed and will be organized the 6/7th of September in Lodi. The Australian Championships will be held at the Goldcoast and we will publish the date of the event as soon as possible. Also the Japanese Championships are confirmed and will take place in September or October. The American Championships will take place in California. More information will follow. In September there will also be the traditional Dutch Double Decathlon in Delft.

The most up to date calendar is here available.
