Athlete rewards based on difficulty of achievements

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


If rewards are to reflect the difficulty of achievements, a yardstick based on historical performance in the activity in question is needed. The International Amateur Athletic Federation devised such scoring methods for individual events in combined events competitions such as decathlon and pentathlon. We attempt to formalise the manner in which rewards could be based on the distribution of past achievements. Properties of the measures we propose are compared.
