Hot link for stats freaks!

For those of you out there who just can't get enough stats to whet your appetite, here's a link to a very valuable resource--the IAAF Statistics Handbook for the upcoming World Championships in Berlin!

This is the same thick book that is included in the media goody bag that all journalists receive when they pick up their credentials.

For the first time, this statistical handbook, which has results from previous world championships, including qualifying rounds, is available online.

This nearly 700-page publication also includes national records in every event, athlete bios, and perhaps more information than anyone can process in one sitting!

You can download part one of the handbook here.

Part two of the handbook can be downloaded here.

NOTE: Hope all of you have a lot of paper to print it--it's nearly 700 pages!
