2018 Men’s High Jump World Rankings

Mutaz Barshim collected 3 Diamond League wins before an early end to his season. (KIRBY LEE/IMAGE OF SPORT)

IF YOUR SEASON is going to end prematurely, as Mutaz Barshim’s did on July 02, you might as well go out in notable fashion. The springy Qatari did just that, equaling the yearly world lead of 7-10½ (2.40) at the Gyulai Memorial, then badly spraining an ankle attempting a World Record 8-¾ (2.46). But he already had 3 DL wins at that point (to go with World Indoor silver) and that was enough to give him his fourth No. 1 in a row. Only legendary Valeriy Brumel, with 5, ever had more. And only Brumel (5) and WR holder Javier Sotomayor (8) have more than his 4 total, which ties him with Dwight Stones. In terms of total Ranking points, Barshim moved past Brumel and Stig Pettersson into No. 7 on the all-time list…

BARSHIM LOST A PAIR, but that could end up being halved if the pending doping violation for No. 2 Danil Lysenko of Russia holds up. In Barshim’s absence, World Indoor gold medalist Lysenko—who never lost to anyone but Barshim all year—won the next two DL meets before his enforced sit-down… Aussie Brandon Starc was the hottest jumper in the late-season absence of the big 2, winning 2 DLs (including the Final) plus Eberstadt… After being shut out of the Rankings last year, the U.S. returned with rookie Jeron Robinson claiming the No. 8 spot.
