Don't worry. This thread won't drag on
like the last (unfinished) Lenton WR
thread.


That thread was well finished after your
baseless assertion that drafting was
"not well understood."


That was not what I said, and only a
quick perusal of the the thread is needed
to see that it was nowhere near "well
finished" after my initial post on drafting.


That's exactly what you said, to quote: "It's probably not well
understood how much assistance Lenton....." replete with the ambiguity
that goes along with that statement. The "assistance" that you referred
to was pointed out to be drafting, which has been researched, studied,
and is reasonably well understood by coaches, most competitive swimmers,
triathletes, and others, albeit not with complete certainty.


How much assistance did she get then? When you say "albeit not with
complete certainty," and you are talking about a very small effect in
this case, then David's comment "It's probably not well understood how
much assistance Lenton.....," is correct. But since you disagree, how
much assistance did she get?

The “assistance” was due to drafting effects which are well “understood” (i.e. known) qualitatively by just about anyone involved with competitive swimming.

The “assistance” was due to drafting effects which are well “understood” (i.e. known) qualitatively by just about anyone involved with competitive swimming. In this case, “understood” means having knowledge about drafting effects, which coaches, and competitive swimmers are quite aware of.
