CarloThe IAAF is delighted to confirm that the IAAF Website’s pages for the nine days of competition of 12th IAAF World Championships, Berlin, Germany (15 – 23 August) received a huge level of traffic, more than doubling the figures received for the 2007 World Championships in Osaka, Japan, which were themselves impressive at the time.

On 20 Aug of Berlin 2009 (Day 6) the website received 1 Million Unique Users and over 16 million Page Hits, having come close to that seven figure target of Uniques the day before when on 19 Aug (Day 5), 947,000 Unique Users came on to the site, producing nearly 15 Million Page Hits.

While not all days reached those two lofty summits, every day in Berlin at least doubled the highest daily figure for the IAAF Website in Osaka 2007 which was on Day 4 (28 Aug 2007) - 320,762 unique users, with page views: 6.5 Million page hits.
