Thank you for your interest in providing results for World Masters Rankings. Results you provide will be used to make lists on this site more accurate. Results for United States athletes will be included in the official USA Masters T&F rankings whose Top 25 Indoor & Outdoor rankings are published annually in National Masters News. Additionally, most US complete meet results inserted into this site are published in National Masters News. This site and the data are hugely beneficial to our sport in more ways than most realize. Most of you probably see how MastersRankings motivates people to participate and helps to increase an international camaraderie. The site is also where official meet records are easily maintained and displayed in an interactive way (Sierra Gold Festival, USATF SE Masters Indoor, USATF Throws – contact us if you want your meet records listed here too). Performance data (personal data, including birth dates and email addresses, is not shared) has been used for aging studies and is being used to update Age Grading. We hope to compile historic results going back to the beginning of Masters Athletics – having that data in one place will be extremely useful and further benefit our sport.
There are 3,274,349 performances listed representing 357,293 athletes from 216 nations!
To date, 98.3% of the results in this site came from meet results websites, timing companies, meet organizers, national rankings, etc. Only 1.7% have been submitted by athletes. We can get many more results listed with your help. Below, in order of efficiently inserting results (freeing up time to work on the many other tasks related to maintaining this site), are the ways you can help provide results for listing on this site.
Athletes submitting their own results should only use this page.
Please feel free to call or reach out anytime to discuss how you can help (or anything else).
Hy-Tek Semicolon Delimited Export
The file can be created in seconds and is, by far, the most efficiently inserted and accurate (no conversion so no conversion errors). The file is created by loading the competition database in Meet Manager; Selecting “File”; Selecting “Export”; Selecting “Semicolon delimited results”. Files can be sent, as is (program ignores younger and other ineligible results / athletes). Send files to email@example.com.
Database Exports and Excel
Many national bodies and organizations keep results / rankings in databases. Some of these already provide information to include in this site. It is probably obvious to those database managers what information is needed (we can reorganize the files provided to insert). Ideally, information provided would be in the same order as the Multiple Meet Results tab in this Excel Workbook. Anyone can fill out the Excel Workbook too for single or multiple meets. Send files to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submit Complete Meet Results
Anyone can submit complete meet results using this page (instructions on the page) or fill out the Excel Workbook too for single or multiple meets and email to email@example.com.
Submit Results for Individual
Submissions you make for yourself using this page are instantly listed! You can also submit for other athletes using this form.

I am a relatively new Masters athlete from Great Britain and about to sign up.
I have noticed that there are in fact three listings for myself all with various age groups from M35 to my correct M58 category.
My question is do I have to go and submit every performance from the other age groups (M52 and M35) for my correct one (M58) or is there any method of you being able to merge the records from all three into one record ?
Many thanks in anticipation
Hello Paul, hope you, your family and friends are well and safe. We have a means to merge your records. Please click on a performance related to each of the other listings. Times, heights, distances and scores are links to the report error form which make it easy for you to report and for us to correct.
How do you or we secure the …honesty of the results’ submission?
Hello Stelios, hope you, your family and friends are well and safe. About 98.7% of the results come from national lists or meet results sent to us or found on the web. Athlete submissions are replaced by results from those sources. All listed results are subject to verification, regardless of source. This is done in several ways including athletes reporting performances they think are not accurate and programs that we have identifying performances to be checked. The latter is constantly being improved and we hope mostly automated in the near future.
My friends and myself from Germany (Sinzig) are registered for the above mentioned event.
We transact our competion in our “Rhein-Ahr Stadion” in Sinzig (near Bonn and Koblenz) in Category A.
We are planning to operate our wirft penthalon including the separate five competions on three different days between 18th July and 2nd August.
F. e. Short Put and Discus Throw on 20th July, Javelin Throw on 22nd July, Hammer- and Weight Throw on 24th July (last but not least depending on weather-situation).
Is that conform to the regulations?
We are very happy to be in this event.
Thanks and best whishes
I have submitted results of friend Samuel Hall same meet on July 25th ,2020 @ Va Commonwealth Games in Lynchburg ,Va @ Liberty Univ .same time I submitted my results which are listed .His times 100m 15.15 & 200m 30.81 FAT & NWI on both events .I followed the screen but apparently has done something wrong ?Please advise.
Many months on from previous correspondence …. you have introduced virtual contests (a very good move) but for the life of me cannot find anywhere that I can enter results of recent virtual competition runs. There is a window saying Enter Results but this comes with a big warning NOT to enter virtual results here – but does not point to where virtual results should be entered. Totally flummoxed. HELP.
Sorry for the confusion, Tony. The easiest way to submit your results is use the link that came in your confirmation email (I will resend).
We, Team Panama, really enjoyed being part of Hemispheres II, and looking forward to next year’s competition. Be well and stayed safe, as we are doing our best in this pandemic. Blessings to all the organizers.
Five of our athletes participated in the Worldwide Masters Virtual Challenge entitled Trinidad and Tobago Hemisphere Challenge 2020 on October 17th 2020.
The results were submitted on 17th and 19th October. On checking the recently released results on your website, however, the performances for two athletes were excluded: SUSANNAH JOEFIELD and CHERYL REYES. Please advise.
You are on the wrong website. Results submissions for the Worldwide Masters Virtual Challenges are made on that website (https://worldwidevirtualmasterschallenge.com/). Anything regarding that should also be addressed using the Contact Us page on that site (https://wvmc.mastersrankings.com/contact-us/).
I’d like to send in results of our next meet here in Honolulu with the Hawaii Masters Track Club. There will likely be 5-10 athletes doing three throws. Can I submit the results here?
Hello Vincent, hope you, your family and friends are well and safe. Use either from the “Submit Complete Meet Results” section above.
Hand time conversion for 400m and up is .14. not .24
Seems the latter is occurring on this site for 400m…?
Hello Matt, hope you, your family and friends are well and safe. There is no rule for converting non-FAT performances except for scoring combined events. Our policy ( https://mastersrankings.com/policies/ ) reflects electing to use the more conservative IAAF combined event adjustment which we feel is appropriate for masters competitions. Several masters athletes told us they thought that non-FAT performances should be excluded from Rankings lists. We did not think that was fair as the non-FAT performances are legitimate but possibly not as accurate as FAT. We looked at what difference 0.50 seconds would make to the Rankings – it made a difference to 6 positions out of over 36,000 so, in our opinion, justified our belief non-FAT performances should be included. For clarity, we refer to these times as non-FAT since adjustments are made to any performance that wasn’t FAT (all timing equipment, including starter, connected electronically). Hope this clarifies.
