Track Stats



The stands at Hayward Field.

Tracks Stats was conceived on a New Year’s Day run around the legendary Hayward Field track in 2014. It was created months later in London through a combination of passion for data visualisation, devotion to the sport and trawling available data sources. Could we show patterns in the extraordinary things athletes do? Could we breakdown the incredible performances by some of the finest athletes in the world? This is what Track Stats sets out to do.

Our contributors include PJ Vazel, Elena Dyachkova and the two Scotts: Olberding and Rodilitz. Mathew Hanratty is the data cruncher in chief and keeps the show on the road.

For your pleasure, Track Stats is advert free. If you like what we do, please consider buying us a virtual drink. You can also sign up to our mailing list or follow us on Twitter and Instagram to support the cause.
