Last month, we took a look at the 2018 middle distance/distance metrics. We looked at the median, mean, and averages for the 2018 season and then compared them to that of the 2017 season.
Now that we are at the Area meet stage of the season, there is plenty of data to compile and look at for this season.
The old question of what makes the best 800m runner, speed or endurance can be evaluated and you can make the choice for yourself. We took the top 500 boys and girls half milers on the year and compared their best 400m times as well as their best 1600m and 3200m times on the season.
Check it out and see who has excelled in the 800m as well as how well they have performed this season in the other events.
