But my blog has been viewed over 6000 times, so that cannot be true.
So I think I will give this blog another whirl, especially since the Olympics are coming up.
Leading up to these Olympics, you will see more opinion pieces and commentary, but I am also keen on getting some data analysis going. You see, in the real world, I am a bit of a data geek. In the gymnastics world, data called scores are produced and I am keen to play with this data and see whether it teaches us anything.
When one does data analysis, a very important thing is asking the right questions. These are a few that I am interested in. Leave a comment if you think of any more:
- Do all around competitors get advantaged or disadvantaged when they excel at one piece over another? (I am especially interested in floor and uneven bars on the women's side)
- Are there "country biases" in scoring?
- How easy is it to predict winners by difficulty scores?
I am sure there are more though!
Overall, I am curious about what the next few months will bring.
