Occassional thoughts about orienteering

SPROUT worked well todayAfter looking at the results from today's WOC sprint champs, it looks like SPROUT had a very good day.
SPROUT had projections for 5 US runners.
SPROUT got one of the 5 exactly right (i.e. predicted the place that the runner finished). SPROUT got two of the runners within one place.
SPROUT got Ali Crocker's place wrong, but it did have her qualifying for the final. SPROUT had only one US runner qualifying for the final.
SPROUT completely missed one runner - missing by a bunch of places (and a bunch of time).
I'm surprised how well the simple model worked. But, it has only been tested once. I'm interested to see how it works for the middle and long qualifications races.
