US WOC goalsWith the WOC just around the corner, I thought I'd dig out the WOC goals:
Here are our goals for the Team at WOC.
I took a quick look at maprunner's WOC database to see how the US did in 2007 (though I don't know that the team had the same goals in 2007):
Qualify for finals:
The US had one qualifier in a final - the women's sprint.
Relays vs. Canada:
The women beat Canada; the men didn't.
The US had several near misses (places 16th through 19th) on the women's side. The men weren't as close (places from 23rd to 32nd).
The team has a blog that they've been updating. It is worth a look.

I am not very impressed by these goals.
Number 1 and 3 are difficult to evaluate. I would think that most of the US competitors have a small possibility to qualify for the finals if they have a really good day and everything is going perfect for them. So how do you audit their performance?
Number 2 is very much dependent on how the Canadians are doing. Whouldn't it be better if both teams were doing well and the Canadians were ahead of USA, rather than having two poor North American races?
Something like this perhaps:
1. At least one qualifier for each distance (men or women) and qualifiers from both sexes during the week. (Maybe not realistic this year, but a goal for future WOCs?)
2. Relay: Top 15 for women, top 20 for men.
