WMA Age-grading calculator (2006 factors)

WMA Age-grading calculator 2006

Select the event (or enter the distance), enter your details and result, then press Age-grade to lookup the WMA factor. This factor is used to calculate an age-graded result, which can be compared with athletes of different ages.

Also shown are the Open and age-graded standards set by WMA, and from these, your age-performance as a % of the Age std is calculated. This can now be compared between different events.

Pressing Result will calculate your result for a given age-performance - e.g. use your age-performance in one event to predict a different event or the same event at a different age.

Times can be entered as hh:mm:ss.dd - if no colon is supplied it will be taken as seconds; only one colon will be interpreted as mm:ss. The decimal seconds (dd) are not required. Distances and heights can be entered in metres, with or without decimal places.

Note that the factors are stored in this page, in Javascript, so that you can save the page to your local machine for use as an off-line calculator.

Decathlon and heptathlon scores (Dec pts) are also calculated from (relevant) results (including age-grading).

This calculator uses the 2006 Age-grading factors - see: Master's track website. Factors available as Excel file.
(The calculator using the previous (1994) factors is still available.)
