Rudolph points are a measure of the simmers age-appropriate performance. They base on the analysis of swim results of german swimmers and were developed by Dr. Klaus Rudolph. (0-5) intermediate, (5-10) local talent, (10-15) region talent, (15-20) national talent.
Note that swimmers reaching high Rudolph points at an early age does not necessarily mean that they become the future top athletes.
This curve approximates the FINA points needed to reach a specific rank. The approximation bases on results of season 2016-2019 top times LCM of 10-19 years old swimmers. Supported nations:
BEL, CAN, NED, POL, POR, SUI, SVK, SRB
650 FINA Data Channel Curves (available in "Profound Analysis")
60% of the athletes that reach at least 650 FINA points in their career passes the inner band of the 650 FINA data channel. The outer band covers 95% of the athletes.
The statistics bases on swimmers, licensed by the swiss swimming federation.
Help - Association Analysis
The association analysis bases on the athletes individual top 3 seasonal results. The results are converted into FINA 2019 points:
SCM: The seasonal top 3 SCM FINA points are averaged.
LCM: The seasonal top 3 LCM FINA points are averaged.
Mixed: The seasonal top 3 LCM or SCM FINA points are averaged.
Gives an overview of the individual club position within the 'Landscape'. The Y axis reflects the tip performance of the club whereas the X axis shows the broad performance.
Shows the club/region/nation progress during the last decade.
Performance Distribution Diagram
The diagram shows the performance distribution across the agegroups. The niveaus are derived from Rudolph points:
 Rudolph points: Beginner
]0-5] Rudolph points: Intermediate
]5-10] Rudolph points: Local level
]10-15] Rudolph points: Regional level
]15-20] Rudolph points: National level
Rudolph points calculation:
Season 2004-2008: are based on Rudolph/FINA table 2008.
Season 2009-today: are based on seasonal Rudolph/FINA tables.
Rudolph points are only defined for LCM. However, Rudolph points for SCM are derived via FINA points:
Athlete Numbers Diagram
Shows the athlete numbers on the level of club/region/nation. The following cases are considered:
same: The athlete stayed in the same club.
from inactive: The athlete started participating in competitions.
from extern: The athlete came from another club..
to inactive: The athlete stopped participating in competitions.
