Abstract

A probabilistic and optimization approach was used in this research to find the combination of rankings and finish times in the different sectors of rowing races that could potentially result in certain final standings. In doing this, competition results were collected from 1996 to 2009 for men's and women's standard 2000-m rowing races. In particular, data was gathered to M4- and W2- races corresponding to men's four and women's pair races, respectively. Only the top six teams' results were considered. The probabilistic modelling was carried out using Bayesian Belief Networks (BBNs) that encoded the four rankings and four finish times in the 500-m sectors as well as the final standing of the boats. Both cumulative and absolute measures pertaining to each sector of the race were considered. It was shown how the BBNs that were constructed for rowing can be used for the two types of reasoning, the diagnostic and predictive reasonings.
