6prog breaks links with IOF
After 13 years of freely given effort, it is with great regret that 6prog have
stopped providing IOF with an athlete ranking system from 1st January 2014.
IOF Council have made changes to the scheme that removes any statistical basis from the leading
rankings. Instead, it will become a list of athletes who have stood on the podium at WOC and World Cup events.
6prog do not wish to be involved with a scheme unless it ranks athletes by their
relative performance at all
Other paid-for services provided by 6prog to IOF also cease from 1st January 2014. This is because
IOF did not give 6prog the identical opportunity to tender for replacements for these systems as was given to
The IOF website can be found here
The original ranking tables will continue
on this new website
early in January.
Many thanks to all the individuals who have helped maintain the accuracy of the rankings over the years.
