Finalizing Rankings Lists
Much progress has been made compiling these lists. 137% more performances were inserted this year than the last two years combined. It also takes much less time to maintain. All this means it is possible to complete the lists with a little more collaboration. You can help get the 2016 lists finalized quicker by either getting complete meet results to me or getting your national statistician to provide performance lists. Contact me
The major difference in inserted performances this year was a result of a huge increase in collaboration. I am optimistic we can further develop these relationships so final 2017 rankings lists can be done by the end of February (and continue to do so every year). Hopefully, you can help me develop the relationships to gather most of the performances so we can finalize the 2016 lists by the end of February too.
The priority is gathering current meet results so the progressive lists are reasonably accurate and you know where you stand throughout the year. Accomplishing this will ensure that lists can be finalized within two months of the end of the season (end of year for Outdoor season). I still plan on, and am working on, gathering performances from as far back as 2013 so final World Rankings lists can be done for 2013 forward.
Ironically, the platform I chose for the site is not very compatible with the database intensive needs of this site. Consequently, I will be revising the site and hope to have it all updated by the end of March.
