Athletics Qualification to Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games

Recommended Posts

Athletics qualification ALWAYS ends up with more athletes than there should have been. It's kind of sad that some Twitter expert doesn't know about that. :p

For anyone interested, here's what my prediction model suggests on medal chances for each event in athletics. I may have to change to a hybrid model for long distance (5000m, 10000m, walks and marathon) events as quite often the pace/strategy is different in each race. The low number of competitions for some athletes caused a couple of weird results so hopefully they continue to compete in 2020. Below are the athletes with a greater than 50% chance at winning the gold medal in an event.

 

:RSA Caster Semenya - Women's 800m - 99.21%

:GBR Katarina Johnson-Thompson - Women's Heptathlon - 81.91%

 

 

 

Still there's no way in hell I'd put any money on KJT winning on odds that reflect these percentages :p

 

About Semenya: I guess that's not taking into account the whole CAS/whatever thing? :d 

 

It's a nice way to show how someone's best results only don't always mean that much, especially the 100m is a good example: Divine Oduduru was fast as hell in the college races, but very disappointing when it got overseas, international and actually big. Based on those fast college times (like so many college sprinters) he gets a very high chance of winning the gold, even though in reality this chance is probably way, way lower.

Yeah, the lack of competitions in heptathlon hurts the model. In the end KJT had two out of the three top performances of the year with only Thiam being anywhere close so I'm not surprised she ended up with such a high chance.

Obviously not, I'll probably remove those performances when(if?) she competes or she gets dropped due to not participating at the Olympics.

Yeah, currently I don't take competition importance into account as it can be quite subjective. Basically, the model acknowledges he can theoretically achieve those results and thus gives him a decent chance. We'll see what 2020 brings him.

@Johne

I have a question. Does your Road-To-Tokyo tool take indoor performances into account? I'm asking because it seems high jumper :USA Darryl Sullivan's jump of 2.33m doesn't appear on your list from this week's update.
