2018 Men’s Hammer World Rankings

Wojciech Nowicki (r) turned the tables on countryman Paweł Fajdek in claiming No. 1. (VICTOR SAILER/PHOTO RUN)

POLAND WENT 1-2 AGAIN, but the order was reversed from last year, Wojciech Nowicki taking the top spot from 3-time defender Paweł Fajdek. That marks the first time a nation has gone 1-2 in back-to-back years since the Soviet Union in ’90 & ’91…

THERE WAS PLENTY of evidence for sorting the two Poles out, as they met no fewer than 12 times. Nowicki came out on top 7–5 and won the important European Champs title to solidify his claim to the top spot. Nowicki had one other loss, to No. 3 Bence Halász of Hungary and Fajdek had no other losses… If Fajdek had been able to claim No. 1, it would have made him only the third man ever to notch 4 in a row…

THE U.S. DROUGHT in the event now stretches all the way back to ’98, when Lance Deal last scored as No. 10. Deal also picked off the last U.S. win, in ’96.
