The question comes up all the time, what other Fantasy T&F contests are there throughout the year. I've meant for some time to create such a list, but I've put it off until now... Here are a few to begin with:

USATF Weekly Pick 'em:
http://www.usatf.org/events/2008/VisaChampionshipSeries/play/

IAAF '07 World Championships:
http://osaka2007.iaaf.org/community/index.html

Letsrun.com had a '07 WC contest, also:
http://run-down.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2654

This one appears expired:
http://run-down.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1341

I know there are others, but the names/locations escape me at the moment. I'll update this thread with any relevant additions.

Dan

It does look that way, doesn't it. Neutral Oh well, it's not like I invented the idea of Fantasy sports... I just hope they keep the data available that's instrumental in constructing the athlete selection lists.

Hi all!

I'm very interested in these kind of games and even more in medal pick / prediction games.

Already running:
http://www.fantasyathletics.co.uk/
maybe some of you have entered this year, or will enter next year

My favourite game:
http://www.atletiektoto.nl/

looking forward to TFN medal picks and winners picks.


Please post links to other games you know!

@jonmulk: if you are still around here, I've entered the contest on athleticslinks.com in 2004 and if I remember correctly there were interesting rules (points awarded if your medal picks finished in the top Cool

If any of you does participate in the either of IAAF fantasy games, you should check the following German meet (most especially relays):
