2017 Nationals Power Rankings

The 2017 Nationals Power Rankings are an attempt to score and rank the competitors that competed in the most events and placed high in the events they competed in at 2017 USLA Nationals.  9 Individual Open women and men events and 6 multi-person events are taken into consideration with an added emphasis on specific individual ILS events which are competed on the internationals stage: Ski, Surf Race, Board, Flags, Ironwoman/Ironman. 

The formula explained: Points for Each Individual Event the individual competed and placed 1 through 16 (Ind. Points). Fraction points for each team event they competed and placed 1 through 16 (Team Points). Scaled point value (16 -> 1) based on finish in individual events, only 1st through 16th places are given points (Points).  Added percentage point value based on the number of ILS events the competitor competed in and placed (1-16) based on the above 5 mentioned ILS events (ILS Events Competed).  Added points for top 5 finish in the above 5 mentioned ILS events (Top 5 ILS Points).

*This ranking is not endorsed or supported by the USLA and is only another way of looking at USLA Nationals data.  While meaningless, it's fun to look at.
