Room M100 AB (Minneapolis Convention Center)

We’ll look at world-best times in the marathon for men and for women over the course of a number of years, and do some data analysis on the findings. We’ll discuss the best ways of interpreting and showing the results. Some ways might shed light on the issue, while others might cloud it more.
