New Age Grades on This Site!
Many of you have noticed that Age Grades have changed on this site. That is because we are now using the most recent version of the WMA committee’s factors. Having updated Age Grades on this site facilitates the committee’s analysis. They are also much more accurate than previous versions so help us confirm performances listed on this site are valid. The Age Grade Factors, if adopted, will be effective 1 January 2023.
Age Grading is an adjustment for a performance (time, height or distance) based on age – the older you are, the bigger the adjustment. The adjustment, known as an Age Grade Factor, is multiplied by the performance to get an Age Graded Performance so all times, heights or distances for each event by athletes from 20 to over 100 years old can be compared to each other! The Age Graded Performance is the equivalent to what the athlete would have done when they were in their 20s.
