About the App Project

This app is an independent project and not associated with the International Athletics Federation (World Athletics) in any way.

The focus of the app is to deliver accurate, well organized and transparent content about the World Championship events from a variety of perspectives - focusing on an individual athlete or a nations achievements over time. Or focusing on a particular event and its champions and medalists.

In recent years we have expanded our database to include some of the Continental Games as well as several World Championships and we will develop further in this direction over the coming years. We aim to provide clear historical data on all big sport events we cover in addition to schedules and medal tables of all sorts for ongoing events.

Hvad vi har
An important element in the encyclopedic character of the app is the gathering of all results of all athletes in all events at all World Championships (and to the level of detail it makes sense).

At the moment our database holds all medals in all World Championships since 1983. Currently the database also holds complete results back until 2003.

The app is based on our Olympian Database Project that focuses on Olympic, Continental, and World Championships in various sports. The database has been developed as a family enterprise over several generations and is run by a small group of people/experts with different backgrounds in leadership and research.

We are indebted to icon designer Lemery for producing event pictograms and we also build our work with the database on World Championships and Olympic historians whose work have paved the way for our decisions and developments. Thank you to all of you!
