To add a new athlete from the Overview → Athletes in the left-hand side menu, click on the Create new athlete button. 


 


2. In both situations, you will see a Create new athlete window. 



To add a new athlete you will need to add the First name, Last name, and select the applicable Gender and Country (all these fields are mandatory). You can also add a Middle name, a Birthday (you can change the date format in the user's settings) or if you only know the birth year, add only the year.
