Male and female with the greatest distance in each event will be awarded 100 points. For example if a male goes the farthest distance out of all the other male participants in the swim portion, he will receive 100 points. The male who goes the second farthest will be given 99 points. Each participant's final score will be out of a possible 300 points.
