I counted only best sprint runners in 2016, e.g. Yannick Michiels has best ever PB's among O-runners (3000 m 7:59.42 - 24.07.2015, 5000 m - 13:47.60 - 23.05.2015), but he did not perform top O-races in the season 2016. I have used following criteria to select runners for analysis:
1. Top-10 in the World of O sprint ranking, or
2. Top-10 in the IOF-sprint ranking, or
3. Top-10 at main IOF races in 2016 (WC Sprint in Poland, EOC sprint, WOC sprint, WC final), or
4. 1-3 place at the legs in IOF Sprint relays 2016 (WC sprint relay in Poland, EOC sprint relay, WOC sprint relay, WC final Sprint relay)
P.S. Please, help me to update this list with missing results/statistics! Thanks in advance!
