Compare Pro Athletes

Use the tool below to compare any athlete against any another in the world


This tool enables you to compare two professional running athletes at a range of distances, including 100 meters, 200 meters, 400 meters, 800 meters, 1500 meters, 5000 meters, and 10000 meters. Whether you're curious about how two of your favorite athletes compare in a head-to-head matchup, or you're looking to analyze the performance of two competitors in a recent race, this tool provides a wealth of information at your fingertips.

One of the great features of this tool is the ability to account for athletes who may not have official times for certain distances. In such cases, the tool uses predicted times based on various factors, such as an athlete's performance in similar events or their overall career trajectory. This feature helps to level the playing field and ensures that athletes can be compared across a range of distances, even if they don't have official times for all of them.

To help illustrate the capabilities of this tool, let's consider a few hypothetical matchups between some of the most celebrated professional runners of recent times. For example, one popular comparison that fans and analysts often make is between Usain Bolt and Mo Farah. Using this tool, we could analyze how the two runners would fare against each other in a range of distances.

Starting with the 100 meters, we can see that Bolt is the clear favorite, with a predicted time of 9.58 seconds compared to Farah's 11.25 seconds. However, as we move up in distance, Farah's strengths come into play. In the 200 meters, Bolt still has the edge with a predicted time of 19.19 seconds, but Farah is not far behind with a predicted time of 20.86 seconds. When we reach the 400 meters, Farah takes the lead with a predicted time of 45.76 seconds, compared to Bolt's 46.07 seconds.

Moving on to the longer distances, we see that Farah's endurance and stamina really start to shine. In the 800 meters, Farah has a predicted time of 1:41.68, while Bolt is predicted to finish in 1:44.09. When we look at the 1500 meters, Farah's predicted time of 3:26.46 is more than 8 seconds faster than Bolt's predicted time of 3:34.78. Finally, in the 5000 meters and 10000 meters, Farah is the clear favorite, with predicted times of 12:53.11 and 26:49.51, respectively, while Bolt's predicted times are 13:23.10 and 27:19.20.

Of course, it's important to keep in mind that these are just predictions based on various factors, and the actual outcome of a race could be influenced by a range of other factors, such as weather conditions, injuries, and more. Nonetheless, this tool provides a valuable starting point for analyzing the potential performance of two athletes in a range of distances.

One particularly exciting feature of this tool is the ability to watch an animated simulation of the race, which allows you to see how the race unfolds in real-time. This feature can be incredibly helpful for visualizing the different strategies and tactics that athletes might use in a race, and for gaining a better understanding of how different factors can influence the outcome of a race.

Overall, the tool that we have discussed today is an incredibly powerful resource for anyone interested in professional running and sports analysis. By enabling you to compare two professional athletes across a range of distances, and by providing detailed predictions and animated simulations of races, this tool provides a wealth of information and insight into the world of running
