    Yes if you want to look at like that----but I was looking at it according to the Avg. time not the person, each person fits into a time slot. You can have 30 people occupying an Avg. time of 44.50 that would give Valmon a 44th placing which is not indicative of his Avg. but the number of athletes. You could say "Valmon is 44th on the all-time Avg list" and that would not be fair to him or representative of his true Avg. The best thing to do is to list the number of athletes that occupy the list at the bottom or top.
    Actually, it would be both fair and accurate. If there are 43 people with better average times than you, then you are 44th. People, not disembodied averages or times, compete in track and field.
    Yes YOU are 44th but the Avg. time is not the 44th. I was just trying to point out the best Avg times--It just a statistics "way of looking at it".
    There isn't a track statistician in the world who would look at it that way.[/quote:uxny2jyb]

    Why not??? It is just for the forum I did not sy i was a statistician.
