World Masters Rankings helps
Striving to fill your needs and enhance your experience in Masters Athletics!
Many know how MastersRankings evolves, much based on athlete requests and feedback, to meet your needs. The two biggest, where do I stand and where do I compete, are the major focus for MastersRankings. The goal is to keep performances up-to-date so you can see how well you are doing and keep track of your competitors. Keeping the lists up-to-date is a huge undertaking but, as you can see in the By the Numbers section of this email, is improving immensely. This is much due to the growing number of people who are devoted to insert results which includes a growing number of your national statisticians – many thanks to all. Daily performances from the WMA Championships in Perth and Daegu were loaded within 12 hours of the competitions ending. This also happens with many other competitions like the World Masters Games (all available results have been inserted daily) and, this year, you’ll see more complete meet results loaded the same day of a meet. More meet organizers are becoming aware and want to help ensure results are in the rankings.

Many interesting meets and great travel destinations
The Upcoming Competitions is still in its infancy and needs meet organizers’ and your help to be a better resource. I will continue to think about and implement ways to make this effective. It is important to have a good, central resource with these competitions.
Many of you have said you really like the Upcoming Competition Promotions. It has been interesting working with these meet organizers and seeing how passionate they are about putting on great events for you. To reduce the number of communications you receive from me, I’ve put this month’s meet promotions lower in this newsletter.
I started throwing the javelin in my early teens and reached 50 meters at 19, winning a couple of County Championships (Norway). I was rubbish at any other event. I then went in the Army for 2 years, so very little throwing, – followed by 4 years in England studying Physiotherapy, during which I had a ‘partial subluxation’ of C2 on C3 (same level as Christopher Reeve/Superman) when landing on my head attempting gymnastics. The two vertebrae were fused together using steel wire and bone chips from my pelvis.
