I've followed AOY since 1965. T&FN rules HAVE NEVER CONSIDERED earlier races, especially at the shortest OG distance.

World lists are not considered. Series of Marks usually means average of TOP 5 MARKS! Fast times at home would have to be at least 5 fast times to be considered by T&FN rules.

I count WCh & OG as 64-32-16-8-4-2-1 & add 20% 10% 5% for relays. I count meets with 4 of the top 8 or 5 of the top 10 on world lists as 16-8-4-2-1. I count meets with 4/15 or 5/20 as 8-4-2-1. The latter 2 meet the definition of big GP meets

Williams earned 194.4 of a possible 282.4 points & had a w/l of 51 - 27

Felix earned 48/56 & w/l of 13 - 1

Ohuruogu earned 81.9/115.9 & w/l of 13 - 6

Sanders earned 49.35/138.35 & w/l of 13 - 15 - 1

I count 3 POINTS for a win vs. ranked athlete, - 1 point for a loss vs. ranked athlete & - 3 points for a loss vs. unranked athlete, so Saunders earned only 39 of a posssible 57 points.

Felix's w/l record is clearly superior to UK sprinters. Her honors record is clearly superior to Sanders. I use a simple algorithm to compute records, but it should be clear that 48/56 is better than 81.9/115.9 for Felix over Ohuruogu. Felix barely finishes ahead of Ohuruogu for honors & w/l. I'll add top 5 average in 2007 if any posters request it.

I rest my case!
