Week In Review: Friday August 6th
My Summer of Weddings continues this weekend, with some travel and a race to follow. Fun times! Here’s what we’ve acomplished at Statistical Skier this week:
- Putting Distributed Sprint Points to good use we looked at the most unimproved male sprinters from last season.
- Following a suggestion from a reader, I looked at whether there might be a relationship between a skier’s World Junior results and winning medals. The results were murky.
- We took a closer look at how Marcus Hellner faired versus his arch-rival Petter Northug last season.
- Finally, we wrapped up the list of cross-country skier retirements with a look back at the career of Swiss skier Laurence Rochat.
