I understood his comment. My comment on one being in STU was to back up my statement and combat his. While there were "5 or more national champions" in ST (actually two, as already commented), there was also a National Champion in STU. So my statement that ST was 1.4s faster being more dependent on course design was validated in that ST had National Champs AND STU had a National Champion and therefore you couldn't use "talent" alone as the reason for the time discrepancies.
