2018 Women’s Discus World Rankings

The last year that Sandra Perković wasn’t No. 1 was back in ’11. (MARK SHEARMAN)

IS SHE HARD TO BEAT OR WHAT? Sandra Perković has now been No. 1 for a record-tieing 7 years in a row, starting in ’12. She lost just once each in ’12 & ’13, then twice each in ’14 & ’15 before going undefeated in ’16. Then came a 2-loss season last year and now a single defeat this year: the grand total during that span being just 7 losses measured against 73 wins (a batting average of .913). But longevity being what it is in the women’s discus, even with all those great seasons she’s still only No. 8 on the all-time scoring list, 23 points out of the lead…

PERKOVIĆ’S ONLY LOSS came at the DL Final, where she couldn’t catch No. 2 Yaimé Pérez and No. 4 Andressa de Morais on her final throw. “Stupid things sometimes happen, but this is sports,” Perković said, adding that she’d been ill with the flu and thought she wouldn’t even be able to compete… Pérez moved up a spot from last year, as did fellow Cuban Denia Caballero at No. 3.
