Please note, any data of this kind will inevitably have errors and in some instances, we have used substitute data from tilastopaja.net or excluded the athlete. For the broad categories, we have included the steeplechase is in with the long distance category and hurdles in with the sprints. When sorting by events, an athlete will only appear in one event (for example, Usain Bolt only in the 100m not the 200m) to avoid duplication.
