Fantasy League -- New Season

The new track season is already under way (sort of; it's only indoor). In a few weeks my fantasy league will start up. If you're interested, send an e-mail to and you're in.

Here's how it works. You pick athletes, they earn points from major meets over the season (mostly the World Championships and World Athletics Tour, but others as well). You can pick any athletes from any events. They also get points from the IAAF World Rankings.

We'll start with a draft in mid-March where each team gets six athletes. Six more times over the course of the season you'll pick up another athlete. Your team total at the end of the year comes from your eight best athletes.

There are no entry fees and no prizes (except bragging rights, of course). The point of the whole thing is just to make following the sport even more interesting and exciting.
