The IAAF's Moscow 2013 statistics handbook is ready for download, plus the US television schedule!

For the true track & field stats nut, the IAAF statistics handbook is now available for download in advance of the IAAF world track & field championships that begin a week from Saturday at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

Produced in collaboration with the Association of Track & Field Statisticians (ATFS) and edited by renowned statistician Mark Butler, the 800-page book is nothing short of a historical and statistical feast for media and fans alike.

In addition to complete results – including each round of every event – from each of the previous 13 editions of the IAAF World Championships, the book also includes important facts and figures from the championships, an analysis of performance trends, superlatives, and listings of multiple medallists and placing tables.

Also included are results from past major championships: The Olympic Games, other IAAF World Athletics Series events, and area championships. There is also a World and continental records section, all-time world lists, listings of national records, a section outlining official World record progressions as well as biographical summaries of many of the stars expected to figure prominently at the World Championships.

The publication is available in two formats--an 'e-book' format here, which makes it easy to zip through the pages on your web browser.


While we're at it, here is the television/web schedule for the world track & field championships:

Universal Sports Network and NBC will air 46 hours of premier track & field action from the 2013 IAAF World Championships in Moscow, Russia from Saturday, August 10 through Sunday, August 18.

The broadcast team of Ato Boldon, Tom Hammond, Lewis Johnson and Dwight Stones will call the action from Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, home of the 1980 Olympic Games.

All broadcast time Eastern. Check local listings.
