2018 Women’s 100 Hurdles World Rankings

WR holder Keni Harrison ventured north of the border to win the NACAC title. (CLAUS ANDERSEN)

KENI HARRISON’S THIRD No. 1 in a row puts her in elite territory. Only Gail Devers (8) and Karin Balzer (4) have ever had more in an event where longevity at the top isn’t all that easy to come by…

IT WAS A CLOSE-CLOSE-CLOSE decision between Harrison, winner the last two years, and Brianna McNeal (née Rollins), the ’13 No. 1. They were the only ones to have a 5-race average in the 12.4s (McNeal 12.426 Harrison 12.460), with McNeal also winning the DL Final. In fact, McNeal had an overall better set of high DL placings, but in the final analysis, a couple of really bad races (an 8th and a 9th, while Harrison was only once lower than 2nd) did her in. Just barely. An excellent case can certainly be made for McNeal as No. 1…

THE U.S. DOMINATED things overall, claiming at least half the 10 Ranking positions for the tenth year in a row, claiming 5. And for the fourth time in the last 5 years Americans pulled off a 1-2-3, Sharika Nelvis getting the No. 3 position. The other 2 Americans were Christina Manning in 5 and Queen Harrison in 10.
