2018 Women’s Long Jump World Rankings

Birmingham was the site of one of Malaika Mihambo’s pair of DL wins. (MARK SHEARMAN)

WITH THE LONG JUMP being one of those DL events which now has only 4 meets before the final instead of 7, seasonal records frequently end up looking rather thin, with dominance hard to establish. Particularly in a non-OG/WC year like this one. Malaika Mihambo ended up with a season of some good highs (Euro gold plus being the only double-DL winner), but also had some clunkers (5th at the World Indoor, 4th in the DL Final). Overall, though, she had the best season of all and gets her first No. 1 (previous high No. 6 in ’16)…

FOR IVANA ŠPANOVIĆ it ended up being another year of oh-so-close as she claimed the runner-up spot for the third year in a row (after finishing 3-2-4 in the years before that). She started in fine form, winning World Indoor gold, but was down 3–2 to Mihambo when the Euros rolled around. The Serb launched what would prove to be the longest jump of the Q-round on her first jump, but suffered a season-ending Achilles injury in the process…

BRITTNEY REESE scored for the eleventh time, leaving her behind only Jackie Joyner-Kersee’s dozen among Americans ever (Heike Drechsler holds an apparently unassailable lead at the world level with 21). But she also passed JJK for most points by an American ever. Reese terminated her season early to begin preparation for the ’19 Worlds.
