  • Natural Variation in Performance

    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.

    Regards Ross
