The International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) website (www.iaaf.org) recorded a huge increase in use from the recently concluded IAAF World Junior Championships, Oregon 2014 over the previous edition of the same Championships two years ago in Barcelona.

The new version of the website was launched at the start of November 2012 and the figures from Eugene show that it continues to be a resounding success.

Unique users accessing the website in the period from July 22-27, 2014 almost quadrupled while the average time a user spent on a page more than quadrupled.

Other statistics including overall visits and page views are almost double that from the last IAAF World Junior Championships – Barcelona 2012.

187.64% increase. Eugene: 1,708,022 (Barcelona: 910,260)

Unique visitors

365.11% increase. Eugene: 1,214,068 (Barcelona: 332,522)
