Athletes from The Netherlands have faired rather well in speed skating events. In fact, Dutch competitors in the Winter Olympics have won 130 medals, 121 in speed skating events. But are the Dutch speed skaters that much better than those from the United States?

Using data from the SpeedskatingResults.com database, the times for 15 of the top 100 performances in the Women’s 3000m event in 2017 were randomly sampled from each country.

You will use this sample to answer the following research question:

Do female athletes from The Netherlands have lower times, on average, in the 3000m event than female athletes from the United States?
