USA Triathlon Launches Online Results and Rankings System
16 Dec, 2013
National Race Results for All Sanctioned Events Now Available
USA Triathlon recently launched a new and improved Results Engine, a website feature with the most comprehensive results and rankings search engine available to multisport athletes.
The updated ranking and results system offers results dating back to 2009.
USA Triathlon annual members can utilize the results engine at rankings.usatriathlon.org to find race results from USA Triathlon-sanctioned events dating back to 2009, as well as annual National Rankings for triathlon, duathlon, off-road triathlon, aquathlon and aquabike, regional and state rankings and individual race results. The increased functionality, which was introduced through a soft launch in early November, has already been well-received by the endurance community.
"We are excited to expand the offerings available to our members through this new and robust results engine," said Tim Yount, USA Triathlon Chief Operating Officer. "The updates to the results database allow athletes to compare their results year over year and make adjustments to their current training and racing schedules based on past successes, which has never been available until now."
USA Triathlon first began calculating National Rankings in 1990, and the rankings program has evolved over the years to better serve USA Triathlon's growing membership base. In 2014, the National Rankings will undergo another update, changing the way pacesetters are identified in the scoring calculations. The change will increase the number of pacesetters in the rankings system, allowing for more accurate scores across the board. Visit usatriathlon.org for more on the current rankings criteria.
