Yes, that was just races in Britain. So obviously this study is counter intuitive to the traditional thought of women competing directly against men. What conclusions have your research led you to make about why women are able to perform as well as men in such a physically demanding profession or wherever? You are really just one Scooting analysis of erasing data so I didn't I didn't click into exactly why the team announced that Fleming differently publicly. I have some thoughts on it because it when you're looking at Lewis, I think it's the whole feeling the work that And the jockey writing.
