Introducing Track Slam, our new game

2 Aug 2017

Today Track Stats has launched Track Slam, a game that will gets its first run out at the world championships in London. Each day of the London 2017 world championships Track Slam will choose an event—and all you have to do is to pick the winner. String together the best winning streak and you will be the Track Slam Champion.

Players are ranked against each other depending on the strength of their streak. (A “track slam”, as we’re defining it, would be a perfect performance of 10 straight wins.) The schedule has now been set and kicks off with the fastest qualifier from the men’s 100m heats. Who will want to put down a marker early on? All selections close at midnight BST before the event.

You’ll just need a Google account to take part. Take a look at the rules (note: lose three consecutive times and you’re out) and sign up via the home page.
