Fastest Times & Best Performances 2018 – Part 1: Swim

This is the first part of a series of posts looking back at 2018 long-distance racing. It lists the best swims using two different measures:

  • Time: This is the actual time an athlete took to complete the leg.
  • Performance: Because of course conditions, comparing the actual time is not always meaningful. As part of my analysis I calculate a “Normalized Time” that as much as possible takes out the impact of the course into the time.
