Talk Title: Modelling the athletics long jump performance – an approach with the largest order statistics
Abstract: The r largest order statistics method is an important extension of the block maxima approach since it allows us to use more information from the data. However, the choice of r is not easy. If r is too large, bias can occur, and if r is too small, the variance of the estimator can be very high. So, we must deal with a bias-variance trade-off. In the present study, we use the largest order statistics of athletics long jump, Men and Women, between 1980 and 2020. In addition to the tail inference, we will analyse the wind effect on the athlete's performance.
