View Full Version : Natural Variation in Performance

09-17-2002, 10:05 PM
Dear All

Just a quick query to ask whether anyone has a suitable reference regarding
the natural variation in performances (i.e. personal best times) of athletes
(specifically sub-elite and elite rowers). I have searched our extensive
online archives (unfortunately our access to sports discus, possibly the one
which holds the answer!) has technical problems right now) which has
uncovered no relevant scientific articles. I have also done a web search
relating to the question and again cannot find any reliable information
(i.e. scientifically backed).

Also if no reference exists then an estimation of the variation of this
magnitude for rowers would be appreciated.
