        Track Shark

        http://trackshark.com/

        It focuses heavily on collegiate track and field, but I just checked it and they're providing information on the summer international meets.

          This site, of course, has links to meet results of all the big (and many of the small) meets each week.

          Also check out -

          letsrun.com - big message board, links to many stories and results, some original content.

          dyestat.com - american high school coverage, big message board, some profiles and original content

          gptrack.com - new site trying to cover sport internationally

          gbrathletics.com - british site that includes many historical results and a comprehensive international calendar

              I'm a stats geek, and the sites I find most useful are:
              www.trackandfieldnews.com: duh
              www.letsrun.com: if you ignore the majority of the crap posted there, the message board occasionally has some useful results and training tips
              www.iaaf.org: live results from GP meets, world rankings and top lists
              www.dyestat.com: excellent high school coverage
              www.tilastopaja.com: an extremely useful database in researching almost any elite runners PRs
              www.algonet.se/~pela2/men.htm: my favorite site; an incredibly deep all-time performance listing in almost all track and field events

                Some of these were obvious but I am licking the ones I have not seen.
                What about specifically throws/field events sites?
                other than LSTJ, The Ring, hammerthrow.org.

                I too am a "stat geek"

                    The "best" site is whatever site is going to fulfill whatever particular need you have at a particular point in time. The above sites listed are all great but last week-end, for
                    example, when I wanted the results from Watford, I was hanging out here:
                    http://www.britishmilersclub.com/results/
                    If you want unofficial quick results from some hard to find meet or race, letsrun hands down. Just ask the question.
                    You want quick official results from a reasonably big meet, hang on the meet site.
                    If you just want to just generally troll, IMHO T&FN and letsrun. You want a Canuck angle, go to tnfnorth. If you want sprint gossip and info-sub10-hands down

                      In addition to the others that have been mentioned, one that I find useful is www.athletix.org. Among its assets is a very good list of links to other t and f sites.

                            Best for what? Every site offers something different.
