If you were a superstar and finished first in all three WODs for a total rank score of '3', you'd have a percentile score of 100. In contrast, if your total rank score is the highest (lowest performing) for all the athletes left, you'd have a percentile score of 0. In theory, I think if you scored a consistent 80th percentile for all 3 exercises so far, your total rank percentile should be around 80 on my plot. I should double check this.
|Alright, I'll say it. Adjusted for the number of competitors, it looks like Southern California has the fittest athletes.|
I had previously assumed that in order to get into regionals, one had to shoot for the top ten percent in each exercise. I would say it's more the exception than the rule, and (not hoping to start any flame wars) it depends quite a bit on each region.
