    You may be right, but I'd bet she will be there and be close to Bronze, if not there. Lots of people get tense at the WC Final; she certainly won't - she literally has nothing to lose. It will be a...

    Drive, baby, drive. Both contests.
    It increases the enjoyment of the meet (if that were possible), by compelling one to root root for every prelim, heat, semi and final.

    Wow. For a guy so clearly obsessed (in a good way, of course - so am I) with the sport, that's a pretty elementary thing NOT to know. As tafm notes, time to get a rule book and read it cover to cover!

    That would nearly impossible without doing 100s of picks. There's always someone off the radar screen who wins. Walcott much? He wasn't in T&FN's top 10 picks!

    It's not 'fudging'; it's statistical probability. Computers don't 'fudge'. The algorithm converts to a number with the highest likelihood of being correct.

    I always though of 'chasers as Cross Country guys/gals who liked the challenge of the barriers. I think Evan Jager's 3:32 1500 speaks for itself. Not to mention Henry Rono and tons of others.

    We can do the simplest one here again; pick the Golds.

    But I like the Dutch contest, because it evaluates your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choices separately.
