2018 Women’s Hammer World Rankings

Anita Włodarczyk started the season with uncharacteristic losses, but then went on a winning streak. (KIRBY LEE/IMAGE OF SPORT)

ALTHOUGH NOT AN AOY-CALIBER season like those she had in ’14, ’16 & ’17, Anita Włodarczyk’s latest campaign was chock-full of goodies as she ran her record strings to 7 titles overall and 6 in a row. In terms of points scored, she’s now at 98, trailing only Yipsi Moreno (100) and Betty Heidler (103), both now among the roster of the retired… Włodarczyk’s list-leading mark rates as “only” the No. 12 performance of all-time, but since she owns the 11 marks ahead of it, it’s pretty significant stuff. She came into the year riding a 42-meet win streak dating back to early ’14 but promptly opened with an uncharacteristic pair of losses. The second of those came at the hands of Gwen Berry, who became the first American ever to beat her.

BERRY PUT AN EXCLAMATION POINT on her win by raising the American Record to 255-2 (77.78) in the process. That broke the mark of 254-9 (77.65) set just 6 days earlier by DeAnna Price (erasing a ’17 Berry mark). The recordsetting wasn’t over, however, as another 15 days down the line Price won the USATF crown at 256-3 (78.12). Price went on to lose only a single meet all year and ended up at No. 2, the highest U.S. finish ever. Berry earned No. 4, behind Wlodarczyk’s teammate Joanna Fiodorow.
