Get on track with this SJA members’ offer

We are delighted to announce another great money-saving offer exclusively for SJA members, worth 15 euros – a saving of almost half your annual subscription fee, and giving you access to an information service that should be a vital tool all the way through to the Beijing Olympics in 2008.

We are offering our members a special subscription to, the world’s foremost track and field athletics statistics resource.

Offering a detailed database on all competitions at all events, plus individual athletes’ career records, ranking lists and even head-to-head searches, tilastopaja is updated daily by world renowned Finnish statistician Mirko Jalava.

Jalava’s work is extensively used by the world athletics governing body, the IAAF, and was the base of the data services at the 2006 European Championships in Gothenburg.

Available online 24/7, tilastopaja is an essential research tool for any sports writer, and will be useful not only at the Olympics, but when Osaka stages the World Championships in 2007, and in March when the European Indoor Championships are staged in Birmingham.

It is just the sort of thing that you can easily use when you are trying to find out just what is the worst javelin throw Kelly Sotherton has ever had when in a medal position in a heptathlon, or when you are trying to work out how many medals Dwain Chambers has had to hand back, or how many medals Merlene Ottey won at the 1986 Commonwealth Games.

SJA members can subscribe to tilastopaja at a special two-year rate of 65 euro, representing a saving of 15 euro. The offer is only available until the end of October 2006.

This offer is only available to fully paid up members of the SJA. If you want more details about joining the SJA, click here.
