    1. Decathlon - Daley Thompson (MarkMas 2Pts)

    3. 400 Hurdles - Sally Gunnell (DaveT 2Pts)
    4. Triple Jump - Jonathan Edwards (SPK 2Pts)
    5. Jumper

    Which just leaves the most recent member of the club. Together with the World record Pts up for grabs SPK can't rest on his laurels just yet - a storming finish down the back straight could still pip him on the line.

    I was thinking Carl Lewis was running around the same time and possibly stronger in the 100m.

    Good logic - I guess when the Worlds went to a 2 year cycle he had more opportunity.

    The last member is a long jumper - still 2Pts for the name though as generally he isn't as highly regarded for some reason. The World records pts are still up for grabs and could make all the difference in a photo finish.

    That's close enough for the points!

    1. Decathlon - Daley Thompson (MarkMas 2Pts)
    2. 100 meters - Linford Christie (SPK 1Pt)
    3. 400 Hurdles - Sally Gunnell (DaveT 2Pts)
    4. Triple Jump - Jonathan Edwards (SPK 2Pts)
    5. Long Jump - Greg Rutherford (SPK 2Pts)

    Thompson & Gunnell were WR holders and Edwards still is.

    SPK dips at the line and we have a winner.
