International Squad 2014 - Points Progress


I'm very lucky to have Emma B on the Agility Team GB Support team. Em is a real whizz on data and as well as working on the performance analysis data she is also collating the 2014 qualification results. 

I asked her if she could give me a summary of where we are to date with the results, I was particularly interested to see how the points break down regionally. 

The Championship shows in particular are spread fairly evenly geographically across the country which should give everyone the same opportunity to gain points, so it's interesting to see how these have been claimed.

Of course not everyone wants to compete at international events which I'm well aware of. So here are the results so far, interesting reading....

Summary
The Credit system for accumulating points towards selection for the 2014 squad has now been running for just of over 2 months - the first show being Wyre (Lancs) on 23rd March and the most recent show being Nottingham on 25th & 26th May.

There have been 123 opportunities to award a total of 1230 points, across all heights and applicable classes. The total of 1,230 points is split 400 Small, 410 Medium & 420 Large, so fairly evenly. The total amount of points actually awarded as of 29th May 2013 is 710, from 65 opportunities. The 710 is split 160 Small, 245 Medium & 305 Large, not so evenly.

33 different Handler & Dog combinations have been awarded credits: 15 Large, 10 Medium & 8 Small. The Handler & Dog combination with the most credits awarded so far to date is a Medium - Steven Richardson with Ag Ch Noworries Sweeps Dream.
