Details

This data set represents a very small modification of a .csv spreadsheet from the source below. Height has been converted to meters, and date of birth is of a "Date" class (see as.Date). A few non-ASCII characters have been replaced by some ASCII sequence (yet to be fixed up properly).

Some competitors share the same name. Some errors in the data are likely to exist.
