What if we have someone on Fetch who actually legitimately does a 100%+ WAVA. This is perfectly feasible with age-group records, particularly female ones, since WAVA is not actually calculated off the world best time, but (I believe) the seventh best. There is a FV65 who runs at about 100% WAVA at the LFOTM5k races.

On a related note, what are the "rules" for rounding results timed to the decisecond? Always round up, always round down, or round to the nearest? I ran a recent 5K in 21:00.2 - should that be 21:01 or 21:00?

(I'm assuming always round up, on the basis that you can't claim to have run faster than you actually have!)
