Basically the amount of points awarded to an event are meaningless. What is important is the differential in points for performance, and whether that is fair. In the shot put, the differential per foot is about 20 points. In the Hep that is about .15 in the hurdles, or .5"+ in the High jump. So a 100 point differential is beating someone by roughly 5 feet in the shot, .75 in the hurdles, or nearly 3 1/4" in the high jump. Whether you feel those are adequate differentials is endlessly debatable and probably decided by your individual athlete's prowess.
