Omega Timing is the official timekeeper for the Olympic Games, including US Olympic Trails. They don’t do very many other events, which is why SwimmeR hasn’t supported Omega-style results.
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.
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. In this post we’re going to compare results from the New York State Section V girls championship meets conducted in Fall 2020 to the same meets conducted in years past.
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.
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.
Welcome to the final post in the State-Off Tournament series. This will be a battle royale meet, with each of the 8 State-Off states competing against all the others at once (or in swimming terms, this is an invitational style meet).
This is it folks, the big one, the finals of the State-Off Tournament, where we’ll see California (1) take on Texas (2) for high school swimming superiority. We’ll also use a t-test to determine whether or not swimmers actually swim faster in finals sessions, when the pressure is on.
