Final results for the 2021 USMS ePostal National Championships have been posted. We’ll take a look at them using some basic summary stats and charts, then work up the data from inclusion in Shiny application built to present it interactively.
There’s a new version of SwimmeR available, v0.9.0. It follows v0.8.0, which I didn’t like and didn’t write about. I’ve made some improvements though and here we are. Rather than just telling you what’s in v0.
Ordinarily posts on Swimming + Data Science have focused on swimming, or sometimes diving. Today though we’re going to visit some of our more gravity-afflicted colleagues and do a bit of cross-training.
SwimmeR version 0.7.2 is now available from CRAN. This new version contains some new features, plus a few changes to make it more user-friendly. Let me show you what I’ve been working on.
As you may have heard there’s a global pandemic going on. One of the more minor impacts of that pandemic has been the disruption of athletics, including swimming.

The second ISL season wrapped up a couple of weeks ago, meaning that now we’re in the off-season. I loved watching the CBC’s coverage of the ISL. The races were exciting, the swimmers seemed like they were having a great time, they were absolutely swimming great times.
If you’re only going to read one line of this post let it be this one: v0.6.0 of SwimmeR is now available from CRAN and it’s better now than ever before.
Today we’re going to use SwimmeR to build a large database of results - that’s the overall goal. Having a more specific goal in mind can be useful though, so here goes.
I’ve done an experiment regarding package downloads from CRAN (or the RStudio CRAN mirror at least) and now it’s time to share the results. When the first version (0.0.1.0) of SwimmeR was released on CRAN in October of 2019 it had very few features - just a couple functions for formatting times and doing course conversions.
Welcome back to Swimming + Data Science friends. Last week something exciting happened - two things actually! First, the International Swimming League kicked off its 2020 season in Budapest. Second, and directly related, I released version 0.
