Seed times: follow-up #2

I present the following table, mostly without comment. There are still some cases with entirely unnecessary seed-time inflations, but for the most part, the order was about the same (have to allow for some good days/bad days from the runners).

Most of the entries that were way off were from those who hadn’t yet raced. So I hope now that we’ve got a few under our belts, that we can just use the times that athletes have run. As you can see from here, there can be a range of deviation in performance, even if the most recent performance is used (Doheney was 4 sec slow, St-Pierre 6 sec fast, Hébert ran within .1 of her last race!). But, at least using that method, we’re all on the same page.
