I wanted to play this using GeekRolls, but my initial attempts to post them to the 1PG SGOYT geeklist were met with frustration because apparently it's no longer possible to attach geekrolls to geeklist comments. So I thought I'd post here and link to it from the geeklist.

With no further ado, so it begins!

100 Metres

First step; first roll 4custom6{1;2;3;4;5;-6} = (1 + 1 + 3 + 4) = 9
I'll keep that roll, on to the second step
Second step; first roll 4custom6{1;2;3;4;5;-6} = (2 + 3 + -6 + 3) = 2
Second step; second roll 4custom6{1;2;3;4;5;-6} = (2 + 3 + 1 + 4) = 10

And I'll stop there for a total score in the 100m of 19.

Long Jump

Running up:
First roll 5d6 = (3 + 4 + 3 + 5 + 5) = 20
Oooh, I tripped during the runup. I'll freeze a 3 and roll again.
Second roll; 4 dice 4d6 = (4 + 5 + 5 + 2) = 16
Not doing too well here. I'm going freeze a 2 and roll one more time.
3rd roll; 3 dice 3d6 = (2 + 5 + 6) = 13
I'll freeze that 2 and stop rolling

Jumping:
Jumping 1st roll 3d6 = (6 + 5 + 1) = 12
I'll freeze the 6 and 5
Jumping, 2nd roll 1d6 = (5) = 5

Gives me a total score of 16 for the long jump.

Shot Put

Attempt 1
1d6 = (1) = 1

My foot slipped

Attempt 2
1d6 = (3) = 3
1d6 = (1) = 1

Wow, I'm clearly not built for strength.

Attempt 3
1d6 = (2) = 2
1d6 = (1) = 1

Three faults in a row means a big fat 0 for shot put.

Discus

First Attempt
5d6 = (4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 1) = 17 - Freeze 4
4d6 = (5 + 1 + 2 + 3) = 11 - Freeze 2
3d6 = (6 + 5 + 1) = 12 - Freeze 6
2d6 = (2 + 4) = 6 - Stop
Total for first attempt is 18.

Second Attempt
5d6 = (4 + 1 + 6 + 5 + 5) = 21 - Stop
Total for second attempt is 21

Third Attempt
5d6 = (6 + 4 + 4 + 2 + 3) = 19
. . .
Re-reading the rules, I think I've misunderstood here. 2nd and 3rd attempts are only if I fault out, so my attempts past the first are invalid, and I'll take my first attempt score of 18.

I wanted to play this using GeekRolls, but my initial attempts to post them to the 1PG SGOYT geeklist were met with frustration because apparently it's no longer possible to attach geekrolls to geeklist comments.
Yes, that is correct. You can only add dice-rolls to the geeklist-header or geeklist-items.

I did it like this: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-Deca-thlon!
I am planning to do one or two decathlons on that list every month. For each, I add all rolls onto a separate geeklist-item and place the results in the comments.

(I misplaced 1 dice-roll, it went to the header instead of the item)
