Moscow, 7 August .-(ANA) - The IAAF World Championships Moscow 2013 will take place in the Russian capital at the historic Luzhniki Stadium from 10-18 August.
Expectations for the championships are high, where a new generation of star athletes is set to break records and stir up drama.

The IAAF Statistics e-book for the 2013 IAAF World Championships in Moscow is now available to download from the IAAF website.

Produced in collaboration with the Association of Track & Field Statisticians (ATFS) and edited by renowned statistician Mark Butler, the 800-page book is nothing short of a tantalising historical and statistical feast for media and fans alike.

In addition to complete results – including each round of every event – from each of the previous 13 editions of the IAAF World Championships, the book also includes important facts and figures from the championships, an analysis of performance trends, superlatives, and listings of multiple medallists and placing tables.

Also included are results from past major championships: The Olympic Games, other IAAF World Athletics Series events, and area championships. There is also a World and continental records section, all-time world lists, listings of national records, a section outlining official World record progressions as well as biographical summaries of many of the stars expected to figure prominently at the World Championships.

The book can be accessed here in ‘e-book’ format, making it easy to flick through the pages in a web browser. The book permanently resides in the publications section under 'E-books'.

Alternatively the 33MB PDF file of the book can be downloaded here.
