    Thanks Ronald, you da man!
    I (PatC on your rosters) love your contests and will always enter the WC/OG, but the ECs take a different brand of background. One that would take a loooog time for a pure-bred USAian to master (Donley is the exception, plus Walsh and Murray). My money's on the Euro-peeps who come on this board . . . or at least lurk regularly.
    Anyone (especially the lurkers) want to out themselves here with some predictions? I know Powell has some mad skillz.

      I did it, but I picked quite a few names out of the hat. Thank you, Ronald.

        Thanks Ronald! Your contest is the best in the world. And you run it like a champion. The European Championships is always the most difficult meet for me to predict during the four year cycle. I will be flipping euros in the air to decide some of these events. Good luck to everyone!

          I wish that were true, but I haven't actually been doing that well in the recent contests.

            Ronald has interesting stats about contestants. You have been in 12 contests and average 68th (out of 400-500). That ain't bad!

              I can't find it. Teach me.

                "All time" at the top right, but it takes a while to load.

                    I instantly hate this Glenn Rosendahl guy who's beating me with a piddlin' 5 contests! He needs to be DQed for lack of participation!

                      I counted 13 members of this message board and/or T&FN league of IAAF DL fantasy among the top 100. I might have missed some.

                        I'm down at #87, and have been sliding down year-on-year since my high water mark of 2nd in 2007. I was in Copenhagen that year, and am back again right now, so expect a much improved performance (although like Atticus I struggle in the European versions).

                          After this post I did a re-count. It is 15. Just as not recognizing AS's name before, there could be a few more, whom I only recognize by their moniker, while their listing is by their regular names.

                            Boy this is a difficult contest. Europeans are not well represented in top lists for most events, other than the throws. The IAAF site does have Europe only lists, which helps, but it just shows how Europe is not the Europe of B.A. ....Before Africans.

                              Ha! Wait until you get to the women’s 400, men’s long jump, both marathon’s, and all four walks! Good luck!
