2018 Women’s Heptathlon World Rankings

The only Belgian ever to rate in the 7-eventer, Nafi Thiam has now claimed 3 No. 1s in a row. (JIRO MOCHIZUKI/IMAGE OF SPORT)

HER FIRST TITLE of 3 in a row was close, but last year’s wasn’t, and neither was this one. Nafi Thiam twice topped 6800 in a campaign where only 3 others topped 6700. The margins of victory in her two wins—by 64 at Götzis over Yorgelis Rodríguez; by 57 over Katarina Johnson-Thompson at the Euros—weren’t spectacular, but they were definitely comfortable…

RODRÍGUEZ AND KJT duked it out for No. 2, with the Cuban getting the edge based on a far superior (181 points) secondary competition… Erica Bougard debuts in the Rankings at No. 4. She’s only the eleventh American ever to score in the event.
