Home advantage (HA) is a well-documented phenomenon in (professional) team sports. However, there is also a growing body of evidence that in individual sports home athletes have an advantage. I define HA as ‘the performance advantage of an athlete, team, or country when they compete at a home ground compared to their performance under similar conditions at an away ground’. In this chapter, I review some of this evidence and will present results of its relevance in one particular sport: speedskating.
