Site Philosophy

As we began the process of creating the site, we tried to keep the following things in mind:

  • The data should be as comprehensive as possible. If the site is going to be unique, it should contain as much data as possible.
  • The site should be well-organized. Have you ever visited a web site hoping to find what you thought was a simple piece of information and wasted a lot of time trying to locate it? We hope that never happens to you here.
  • The site should be fast. Most of the pages are static, so you don't have to wait for information to be pulled from a database before viewing a page.
  • Links, links, links. Visiting Carl Lewis' page may lead to a question about the 1988 Summer Olympics, or a question about the USA's performance at the 1996 Summer Olympics, or a question about Olympic athletes that share a birthday with Lewis. All it takes (hopefully) is one click to find the answer to your question.
  • The HTML and CSS used to create the site should adhere to the standards set forth by the W3C. Have you ever visited a page that doesn't render properly in your browser? The most likely reason for this is invalid code. I find it especially irritating when a page only renders properly when viewed in Internet Explorer. My browser of choice is Firefox. It's completely free, so give it a try if you haven't done so already.
  • The site should be fun. We had a good time putting this site together (yes, we like writing code) and we hope you have a good time when you visit. If you come here looking for the results of men's 100 meters butterfly at the 1972 Summer Olympics, there is a good chance you will end up on a page that has nothing to do with your original query.
