Monte-Carlo – The IAAF is delighted to unveil its new image on the internet with the launch of our new website.

The IAAF Website, whose home page was last redesigned in 2007, offers the visitor a brighter, more visual, less cluttered visit. Our new platform is transparently searchable giving users easier access to the existing statistical information such as results, records and lists, and our editorial content including over 25,000 news articles and 10,000 photographs.

New features include a standalone RESULTS section where you can access ALL results, for the first time providing a one stop location for all archived data from the various categories of IAAF Competitions; a more visual ATHLETES section; and a new DISCIPLINES section providing basic information especially designed to help engage newer fans about our sport.  To coincide with our launch the video content of our MULTIMEDIA is powered by the IAAF’s YouTube channels, which along with the well-established IAAF World Athletics Club on Facebook and IAAF Twitter, plugs social media into every page.

The new IAAF website has been designed to be mobile compatible, and IAAF apps are planned for 2013, along with further new sections such as a Fan Zone and a Shop.

 We hope you enjoy the new website experience.
