I didnt count Bright in PV as he competed in decathlon full-time. I'm not sure what standard to differentiate decathletes from non decathletes. 5 competitions? 10? I kinda of went with my knowledge here but I am very open to change.

You could say Averbukh was a full-time decathlete early in his career, too. Even Ladji Doucoure at 19 chose decathlon rather than 110H as the event to compete in at the Euro Juniors, so he might have considered himself primarily a multi-eventer at that point.

I've read before that Rudisha and Schult have competed in the deca. Anyone have any documented scores for either?

Didn't Paul Cummings (5k,10k) have a superior mark to Jimmerson (4,000)?
