IAAF offers Fantasy Track game for 2009 that includes AF Golden League, Super Grand Prix, World Athletic Championship and World Athletic Final competitions.
It may not get as many hits as fantasy baseball this summer, but the IAAF Fantasy Athletics – 2009 game should appeal to harcore track fans around the world–and there’s more than a few of us out there! The competition is free on the IAAF website and it challenges track fans to pick the best team at each of twelve meetings this summer. In addtion, there will be a separate competition for the IAAF World Championships in Athletics, which begin August 15th in Berlin.
The idea is simple: you get to pick a team for each meeting, but you can only choose an athlete once a season. That way you can’t pick Usain Bolt to win the 100/200 every week. Your designated “captain” for each meet scores double points for you–so choose wisely! Although not as sophisticated as your fantasy baseball league, it definitely looks like a fun and entertaining way for harcore track geeks to get even more geeked up for this summer’s action.
