Open Statistical data

http://www.fuguescience.com/crossfit (wfs)

These are the guys who did mucho analysis of the open results, as interviewed by Rory on the Open Update. One thing to come out of it is the above link which takes your gender, height and weight to come

Note that the scores it puts out is reps, not rankings. You'd then have to look through the Open Results (wfs) to see how that'd place.

For me personally, entering my gender, height and weight says I'd rank about 200 in the region and trying it again with about 15lbs more has me ranking top 100. I used the top quartile figures. It's moreso just a bit of fun really because stats interest me.

So I'm curious if others placed similar to where they statistically would, or better / worse?

Re: Open Statistical data

I was slightly above where they said I would be. Not by much, though. Gotta get stronger...

Re: Open Statistical data

Dave have you analyzed the age break down. With out doing the math it seems like Master needs a 35 to 39 category. Does the data support that?

If it wasn't for Bill Grundle (Sp?) who is a beast of a 42 year old, no one over 40 makes the top 60. Average age seems to be about 28. Didn't compute SD but it won't be that big.

Seems clear post 35 years old you are a major long shot in open.

Re: Open Statistical data

Brendan - isn't my data nor my website, I just heard of it linked in a journal video so thought I'd share for people who'd be interested.

FWIW, eligibility for the World Masters Games begins at 35. So the larger athletic community agrees with you.

Re: Open Statistical data

If not 35, then certainly 40.

If you look at all the competitors at the regionals, very very few over 40. There is just a big decline starting around 30 - nothing to do with not being fit, just natural occurance of drop off in athletic performance (look at most professional sports - over 30 and there is generally a drop in performance.)
