2018 Women’s 10,000 World Rankings

Stella Chesang won the Commonwealth race, but Stacy Ndiwa bounced back for No. 1 after winning the African Champs gold. (MARK SHEARMAN)

LIKE THE MEN, the women had no European Circuit meets to run in, leaving the African Championships as the year’s biggest race, followed by the Commonwealth Games. Stacy Ndiwa was edged by Stella Chesang at the Commonwealth, but came back in fine fashion to win the African title and claim No. 1… Chesang, just 4th in the Africans, ends up at No. 3, as undefeated Pauline Korikwiang slips into the No. 2 position…

THERE WAS ONLY a single sub-31:00 runner on the year, Kenyan Pauline Kamulu, who actually did it twice, winning Japanese corporate races at 30:41.85 and 30:56.94. Despite not meeting any of the other Rankers, that was enough to give her No. 7… WR holder Almaz Ayana, No. 1 the last 2 years, was troubled by a knee injury and didn’t race all year.
