Decision-making is a complex activity involving subjective and objective aspects. The aim of this paper is to present a method that can help athletes to objectively optimize their decision making process regarding the choice of races, based on their own characteristics and the characteristics of the races. To this end, the model uses Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) as a tool to assist in the selection process.
