    KW on the inside :
    - Can apply pressure on RB by reducing/closing the stagger ;
    - Blind on the come-back of RB for longer.
    But :
    - Not his favorite lane, though he's already won in these conditions ;
    - Could make him try to do too much as he's more aware of what RB's doing.

At the end of 2021, would it make sense to say he's got a 3-year winning streak?
    Agree, so what is EM 999 going by?

    Ok, that makes sense! Tilastopaja list it from his next win after last loss. For stat purposes what is more common or accepted?

    You are spot on. Absolutely one for the ages! Here's hoping for another one for the ages.

    Speaking of intangibles - what if KW draws and inside lane to RB in the final? How do any of you guys see that affecting their strategies.
    As professionals, they know to carry out their own race and run their best time. That cannot be done by worrying about the other guy.
    As humans, we are always affected by our surroundings. Whoever draws the inside lane has the psychological advantage of knowing where the opponent is. But if that draws you out of your best race . . . uh oh.

    I don't see any optical distortion. I see an athlete and coach who realized that the DL didn't ever really work into his training plan. The DL is fun and lucrative, but it is not peak-enhancing.
    Go over there in mid-final-phase-training (losing the travel and rest days); you will NOT be at your best, risking a blemish that will go into your final season-ranking, which will negatively affect your contract incentives.
    Pass.

    All I wanted to do was show that KW and RB are not close to being in the GOAT discussion.

    And because of EW'S record, being GOAT for the 400IH is one of the most difficult events to do so. Oerter and the discus is probably the only one on a par with EW.
    With all this talk of GOAT status and EM being pretty secure for the next 4 years who is the baby goat? Ha!

    This one?

    The chart is correct for KW and RB as it is the period being undefeated. Therefore I counted from date of ladt loss.

    Which means my period for EW may be wrong as for EW I just lifted from Wiki

    In the chart you have KW as having a win streak of 2y 11m and 363d. Is this correct because I see that his win streak started May 30th 2019 which would be a little over 2y 1m. Am I missing something?
