Help - Athlete Analysis

The athletes swim times history is converted into FINA points (2020) and plotted in relation to the age of the swimmer.
Short and long course times are shown in the same plot: Limit analysis to SCM only: https://swimstats.net/?course=SCM
Limit analysis to LCM only: https://swimstats.net/?course=LCM

NIVEAU Curves
These curves are an approximation of the Rudolph point table (2020).
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. Note that swimmers reaching high Rudolph points at an early age does not necessarily mean that they become the future top athletes.

RANKEQUIVALENT Curve
This curve approximates the FINA points needed to reach a specific rank. It is based on results of season 2016-2019 top times LCM of 10-19 years old swimmers. Supported nations:
BEL, CAN, EST, FAR, LTU, NED, POL, POR, SUI, SVK, SRB

Overall Progress - 650 FINA Percentiles
The 650 FINA percentiles base on national swimming result data. Each season, the swimmer's top 3 FINA results are averaged. LCM- and SCM seasons are considered individually. 
60% of the athletes who reach at least 650 FINA points in their career pass the inner band. The outer band covers 90% of those athletes.
Supported nations:
BEL, CAN, EST, FAR, LTU, NED, POL, POR, SUI, SVK, SRB


Help - Nation/Region/Club Analysis

The nation analysis is based on the athletes individual top 3 seasonal results. The results are converted into FINA 2020 points:

Landscape Diagram
Gives an overview of the individual club position within the 'Landscape'. The Y axis reflects the top performance of the club whereas the X axis shows the broad performance.

Progress Diagram
Shows the club/region/nation progress during the last decade.

Performance Distribution Diagram
The diagram shows the performance distribution across the age groups. The levels are derived from Rudolph points: Rudolph points calculation:
Rudolph points are only defined for LCM. However, Rudolph points for SCM are derived via FINA points:
time_scm→FINA→time_lcm→Rudolph

Athlete Numbers Diagram
Shows the athlete numbers on the level of club/region/nation. The following cases are considered:
