"Dec" or "Deca" means 10.  A decathlon is a competition comprised of 10 different track and field competitions.  This winner is chosen by tallying the scores of each competition.   The competitor who receives the highest score wins.  An example sentence could be:

After all ten events, Amber received the highest score and was declared the winner of the decathlon.
