Week In Review: Friday, June 11th

A recap of what’s been going on here at StatisticalSkier.com this past week:

– I finished up a four part series examining rookie performances on the World Cup scene by tackling sprinting.  (Distance racing was covered last week.)

– I updated the athlete ranking graphs, adding several more years and changing the color scheme slightly so that North American skiers are easily identifiable.

– I unveiled equivalent ranking graphs for biathlon.

– I tackled the timeless question: Daehlie vs. Smirnov.

– I introduced the (perhaps silly) concept of skiers as Gadflies and Punching Bags.

– Finally, I looked back at the long and exemplary career of Italian skier Sabina Valbusa.

Have a great weekend!
