    If you have enough data you could estimate a 2nd-leg effect, but yes there are effects of the legs. For 2nd, the first handoff is in a clean zone and the 4th only has one handoff, and often that one...

    In high school, kids and parents are interested in their team/individuals but not so much in the meet overall. It is one reason why I have little interest in the Nike XC meet which emphasizes teams...

    I see them listing four streams Sunday, all starting at 8:00am CDT, even Track in addition to the three Super Feeds which often start earlier. Sometimes I watch the feed on replay and avoid this...

    In a regular tack and field meet there are a lot of winners in a short period of time, making winner-interviews take a lot of screen time. In the Olympics there are only a few and US TV focuses on...

    Maybe the best data would come from the NCAA meets with 400h runners on the 4x400. 43.52 was the mark following his 47.02, so using 0.7 that is 44.22, so 2.80. In that same race there were several...

    There were a lot of potential sub-4 milers, some of whom had unnecessary barriers. And the 1500 mark was worth about 4:01. No one else is on par with 2:01:39. While maybe naive, I think that his...

    Relative Humidity (H20 to MaxH2O) - All that matters is the number of H20 molecules that displace (in a given volume) the heavier N2 and O2 molecules, making the air less dense and lowering the wind...

    "saturation" has no effect at all, the only thing that matters is the fraction of H2O molecules in the air (dew point is the most useful proxy), not the actual proportion (RH) of the possible H2O. ...

    He is 18th on the descending order list. After the competition as I was walking outside the stadium I talked with William's dad; he said he was told that ZZ's the coach wants to shut him down rather...

    I agree. At first the cramping was in his calf, but then his groin, as you can see when he is in the pit. I was sitting with the South Dakota State crowd; they did much better on the women's side as...

    1 mps along the vector of the straight, that is not the wind speed, just one component. There has been a cross wind most of the time (I have been watching the vaults all three days, and they have the...

    That was a hell of a race. The wind certainly had a negative effect on the times, but since it was likely stronger going down the backstretch than too the finish it was not as bad as for the 200s. ...

    There were a number of 58-foot fouls with very little on the Plasticine. The shortest jump for the top four was a 17.10, and most of the fouls were monsters.
