They are. The better your position, the higher the points.

It's not injustice. It's how a team competition works. It's not a decathlon.

The knock-off system in jumping and throwing event was unfair. For example Vadlejch's best would have been enough for 2nd place (ranked 5th) or Perkovic would have won with her best score. Why was that necessary? To have one from each continent among the best 4? They didn't have that in running events. Most points possible (15) for the Americas in Men's 3,000m, for example.

Running is more important because athletics = running, duh!

Yes, this definitely favoured the weaker throwing continents, like Africa.
