About this page

So many visitors to this site, including long time users, have been surprised when shown how to navigate this site and all the features. This page was created to help anyone get more from this site and do it faster. Much of the information available on this site is cross-referenced using links. This page has many links too! We strived to keep the site clutter free with succinct, intuitive links enabling you to get to what you want in fewer mouse clicks. Please take some time to read this page and use it to get more from the site.

Click on it! Much of the text on this site is a link to lists, information or pages. Virtually every athlete’s name is a link to their profile (see below). Each athlete profile, competition result and list has a header with an age group and event. These are links to respective, top 50 rankings lists. For example, a female athlete’s profile has a list heading below 2019 Outdoor Performances with W65 and 800 Meter Run. W65 is a link to the 2019 Outdoor Women’s 65 – 69 Top 50 Rankings for 50m through 5000m Walk (the full range of W65 events contested outdoors in 2019). 800 Meter Run is a link to the 2019 Outdoor Women’s 800 Top 50 Rankings for W30 through W85 (the full range of age groups contesting that year).
