Re: Regional Rankings (World) - First two weekends
Very interesting post Nicolas. Thanks for putting this together.
It would be interesting if the Games organizers considered At-Large bids to the top 5 athletes not already qualified, based on the worldwide comparison that you've set up here. These 'wildcards' could then finish just off the bubble for their region, but still have a longshot chance if their performance was especially strong compared to other regions.
Dan Bailey sure has thrown down some performances to date. Will be very interesting to see how pre-qualified athletes Mikko, Rich, Graham, and others who won't have regional scores measure up to Dan once the Finals start.
