This works on DB2 V8 for LUW.

CREATE TABLE competition(name VARCHAR(10), result INTEGER);
INSERT INTO competition VALUES
('Joe', 12),
('Joe', 10),
('Joe', 8),
('Joe', 15),
('Jill', 20),
('Jill', 17),
('Jill', 21);

SELECT name, AVG(result)
  FROM (SELECT ROW_NUMBER() OVER(PARTITION BY name ORDER BY result) AS rn,
                         COUNT(1) OVER(PARTITION BY name) AS cnt,
                         name, result
               FROM competition) AS X
  WHERE rn BETWEEN 2 AND cnt - 1
GROUP BY name;

NAME       2
---------- -----------
Jill                20
Joe                 11

  2 record(s) selected.

The can be eanhance to cut of more than 1 row or using %.
As it is the minimum rows required is 3.
