Now that Semifinals are already 2 weeks behind us, the community is already turning its attention toward the Games where we’ll see a new champion on the women’s side, along with several men who will attempt to beat Justin Medeiros.

Before we officially forget about Semis however, we still have some great data from the tests, athletes, and regions that we would like to share.

Throughout this article we will be looking at margins of victory among the tests to see how fit the top athletes are relative to the field as a whole.

For example, A 280 pound snatch and a 325 pound snatch both rank above 275 pounds, but they have vastly different implications for measuring fitness.   

Analyzing margins of victory across events provides a more comprehensive picture of comparative fitness among athletes.
