  1. Expressed are percentage difference between women and men. A positive percentage means that women perform better than men and vice versa. For example: women with age 36 years in 2007 performed 2.6 % less than men in ultramarathon 24 h. n.s. interaction effect not significant that is: gap corresponds to ultramarathon 6 h
