Why is there no "10m Ergo Score"?

Chin up chicken time trial?

Career lard total?

How about number of places between lowest and highest positions ever rowed in the bumps? I doubt many people can beat 85 for the Lents...

University races?

How about number of crabs under race conditions?

Well, you could have 10m , 100m, 250m, 500m, 1k, 2k, 5k, 10k, ... etc ergo scores on a Top Trumps card, but it might be difficult to fit other data in.
When this poll is finished, someone should get a laminated set of cards made up with the appropriate data included. Maybe sell packs through the JT ?

And for the coxes, number of crashes?

Yes, but 10m is really the only one that counts...

Might be hard to update said laminated cards. Instead we should have an online top-trumps card game where players (members) can log in and take each other on...

Information collected or generated online and then presented in a suitable layout & style to be printed looks to me like the way forward.

10m is rubbish cos everyone gets the same time. I reckon 100m and 5k would be good, as they won't correlate too highly, and then everyone would have to do 5k tests.

Nah, I'm far too ickle to be any good at that sort of thing.

how about standing vertical leap height?

Cricket averages?
by top trump? - Fri 25th Jun 2004, 10:23am
I feel some lwt friendly categories should be added:

number of creme eggs consumed/% body fat

2k test average wattage/kg body mass

or maybe even a multiple of the two...

One-legged squats ?

I don't know how many of those I could do... I think the most I've done on one leg without swapping was 44 at Tribal BBQ last year, but only because that's how many I was asked to do.
by bet you can't... - Sat 26th Jun 2004, 4:52pm

Ok can I ask you to do 3578....
by Dubya - Sat 26th Jun 2004, 5:44pm
.... in less than eight hours? (to make it easier...?)
by Dubya - Sat 26th Jun 2004, 5:45pm
On second thought, maybe we should give you 24 hours...
