Athletics New Zealand Records and Rankings

NZ Records & Rankings


The All-Time lists have been constructed by taking the top 20 known and verifiable performances in each event prior to 2008. Since then, performances have been added where they are superior to the 20th best performance.

National Champions 1887 – 2016 Book Published

I have updated the Athletics New Zealand National Champions book to include all National Champions of 2016. The book (217 pages) is free for download.

The book lists all National Champions, in winter and summer competitions, in every event and in each age group from 1887.

Wind Readings

I have noticed recently that there are a lot of performances in the horizontal jumps and sprint events that meet the performance standard for inclusion into the rankings lists. However, there is no wind reading assigned to the performance and thus the performance cannot be included into the rankings lists. Further, in the horizontal jumps, if the jump series is not stated then I cannot list the best performance with a wind reading of 2.0m.s-1 or below. Your understanding of these criteria for inclusion or non- inclusion into the rankings lists is appreciated.

A statement about Records

I need to clarify one or two issues around the subject of New Zealand Records.

The Athletics New Zealand Regulations (Competition) state:

C2.5 – Conditions for Records

  1. (b) No performance shall be recognised as a New Zealand record until it has been ratified by Athletics NZ in accordance with procedures approved by the Board of Directors.

Of late a number of performances have been claimed to be “records”. A majority of those “records” have yet to be ratified and the process can take up to 30 days to ratify a record. Further, one performance where it was applied for a “record” and was publicised as being a “record”, was declined (not ratified) because the performance was not officiated by correctly graded officials. So please be aware that a performance may be publicised as a “record”, but subsequently may not be ratified as a record as it did not meet the criteria for a record.

Secondly, I would strongly advise ALL athletes to carry with them, a copy of the Record Application Form and to read the cover page. Unfortunately some officials will not know what the current record for an event is. Hence it is contingent on the athlete themselves to make the officials at the meeting aware of the possibility of a record and to ensure that the process for submitting an application is followed. A joint effort by the athlete and the officials will result in a enhanced outcome, rather than each thinking that the other has the matter in hand.
