At World Masters Athletics we are lucky to have the work provided by John Seto of MasterRankings.com.
Below John provided us with details of the rankings systems and also where you can see the current world leads, and see how far you are away! Will they be broken whilst we are here at the #WMA2018 WMA Championships in Malaga
How many new #1 performances in Malaga?
World Masters Rankings (also known as MastersRankings.com), the official rankings for our sport, compiles performances throughout the year. Click here to view the current top ranked athletes in each of the track and field events contested in Malaga. Thousands of performances are added each week and MastersRankings.com hopes to update Malaga results in the rankings daily so keep checking the list to see updated #1!
Improving listing time and quantity
MastersRankings.com started a grass roots effort in 2014 to list all athletes competing in eligible competitions. Since then, athletes, organizations and WMA Affiliates have pitched in to help gather meet results for inserting into the rankings. WMA representatives, including WMA Affiliates, will be meeting with MastersRankings in Malaga to further improve cooperation so more performances and athletes can be listed quicker. We hope this will have a revolutionary effect on the rankings list so athletes will have a much better view of how they stand throughout the year.
