Within Athlinks' feature set are the abilities to Follow fellow athletes and view Rival stats for people with whom you've competed in the same race. This quick guide will show you how to follow Athlinks members and view your Rival stats.
Following someone is as simple as locating their profile in Athlinks search, then Follow under their Profile header.
- From any screen in the App, tap the Search icon.
- Tap the Athletes tab, then enter the name of the person you're trying to find. After a few moments, one or more people should appear. If there are a lot of results, you can tap the Filter icon just below the "Unclaimed Results" tab to narrow results by Location, Distance from that location, and Athlete Age.
- You can tap the Athlete's name to view their profile including Timeline, Results, Statistics, Friends list (Following), and Rivalries. To follow the person, tap the blue + FOLLOW button next to their profile picture. If you're already following the person, the button will say FOLLOWING.
Once you're following someone and you've competed against them in the same event, you can view them in the Rivals tab on your profile.
Within this tab, you can view every person you've competed with in any event, and your Win/Loss ratio vs that person. If you see a blue fist, it means you're winning in that Rivalry. If the fist is gray, it means you've got work to do!
You can tap on each of the Rivals to see details on each race you've competed in together including race name, date, location, and how much faster the winner of your rivalry was.
You can tap each individual race on this view to see a more complete breakdown including total time, pace, differential, and primary division.
