The power of 10 is just a marketing ploy and it's a bad one at that. I am continually e-mailling them with updates to their site because they have duplications and ommisions from their results.
I find it incredibly frustrating that the national governing body promotes a site that is so inaccurate.
It's very manipulative too. who sets the standards? where is the working out to show how the "Power of 10" is come about
lets take the U17men's javelin for example.. 11 boys over the 55m target.. now does that mean that there are 11 boys throwing exceptionally well or is it that the target was set based on years of poor performances??
if you look at the Power of 10 site U17 javelin and then look at Athletics Data site you will see there are some differences.. how do these differences occur?
I recently had to contact them about this one...
Come on guys... U15 boys...Javelin.. UK Number1 finished 6th with a throw of 61.76m.. then how can he be the UK number1???? More to the point... how on earth would he produce a PB of 26.5m in one go..
I know you use data readers but i think you should really proof read what you are pubishing before you publish it
