Athletics New Zealand Records and Rankings

NZ Records & Rankings


The All-Time lists have been constructed by taking the top 20 known and verifiable performances in each event prior to 2008. Since then, performances have been added where they are superior to the 20th best performance.

2016 Almanac

Due to unforseen reasons beyond our control, Almanac 2016 was published late this year. It is now available for download and viewing here

It has been decided that this year there will not be a printed version of Almanac 2016 for sale. Almanac 2016 is therefore available for web-viewing.only.

National Champions 1887 – 2016 Book Published

I have updated the Athletics New Zealand National Champions book to include all National Champions of 2016. The book (217 pages) is free for download.

The book lists all National Champions, in winter and summer competitions, in every event and in each age group from 1887.

Wind Readings

I have noticed recently that there are a lot of performances in the horizontal jumps and sprint events that meet the performance standard for inclusion into the rankings lists. However, there is no wind reading assigned to the performance and thus the performance cannot be included into the rankings lists. Further, in the horizontal jumps, if the jump series is not stated then I cannot list the best performance with a wind reading of 2.0m.s-1 or below. Your understanding of these criteria for inclusion or non- inclusion into the rankings lists is appreciated.
