    Is there an index page on their website for the various analysis which is being published? I can't seem to find it. I've seen a couple of PDF files concerning the men's 100m final and wondered where people found them. I presume there is some data available from other events too and it would be nice to browse.

    Not yet i think, but if so i hope they list it here:

      They should be available here in due time also

        i thinks for the vertical jumps, hammer and combined events its rather here: ... sseite.htm

          You are probably familiar with these, but here are two separate analyses for the 100m:

 ... _13666.pdf

          One is LAVEG, the other is from the lateral cameras. Note the discrepancies between some of the times (e.g. 60m split -- 0.02s).

            A somewhat related question:
            I quite enjoyed the 100m splits from all the distance races in Beijing. Is something like that going on in Berlin?

              Out of curiosity, can anyone explain the following data:

     ... _13666.pdf

              This is from the LAVEG. What is it we're looking at? The blue line is periodic, and I gather is leg motion (there are roughly 40 peaks, consistent with 40 strides). The oscillations cluster around the center-of-mass velocity. How are Vmx and V70 calculated (because they're different -- Vmx < V70, but Vmx is defined as the maximum velocity at 65m).

                us dumb-fucks aren't supposed to be offering opinions to you on such matters ! :P

                the instinctive answer woud be :

                - that they stuck the data into maple, got a polynomial to power terms of ?40 ( or best curve otherwise ), differentiated it for best velocity & distance it occured

                - that "12.35" data looks very rounded up/down, as they are almost all

                  Love your Maple reference! Excellent Canadian product (from Waterloo, where I went to graduate school).

                    i saved myself $2000 by downloading it from edonkey ( now emule ) & got a password from simply surfing it off the web !

                    ( all gone now - on an ole defunct computer - i do without now - better to be honest & buy it )
