Final JWOC peer nations rankingAfter the JWOC relays, I came up with my final JWOC peer nation rankings.
New Zealand 96
The scores can be interpreted as the chance that a matched runner from the nation will beat the matched runner from the U.S. "Matched runners" are the runners from each nation who are best or 2nd best or 3rd best and so on, in each event. For example, the 3rd best result from New Zealand in the sprint is "matched" against the 3rd best result from the U.S. If you look at all of the matches, you'd find that New Zealand would win about 96 percent of those matches against the U.S.
