Preparing for this newsletter by looking through rankings lists to include more about athletes and competitions as you've requested helped me realize how much further this site has developed. Masters Athletes contact me more when changes are made. You tell me how much you love the improvements and how much you hate the changes (proves the adage that you can't please everyone)! Everything on this site is inspired by Masters Athletes - this is your site so that is the way it should be. This site will improve more with your feedback.
A facet Masters Athletes were very vocal for and against was all-inclusive rankings lists including all athletes, regardless of performance caliber. Some were concerned that it was too ambitious. It is unquestionably ambitious and, frankly, I had no idea if it could be done. It can be done - just look at the number of listed athletes in each event and the quality of performances in the rankings lists! Clearly, there is much more work to do but it is hopefully apparent that MastersRankings' plan is coming together.
Almost 60,000 more performances have been added to these lists this year than were added in 2014 and 2015 combined (444,621 vs 388,021). Read more about the incredible gains made this year later in this email.
