2018 Women’s Pole Vault World Rankings

Vault advice at Pre for the likes of Rankers Eliza McCartney, Sandi Morris & Katie Nageotte comes out of the East Grandstand. Bonus points if you see Mondo Duplantis’s dad. (JEFF COHEN)

WITH A WINNING RECORD against all other vaulters, the most DL wins (3) and the best sequence of marks, Sandi Morris was an easy choice for the top spot. That returned her to the preeminent position she had in ’16 before being demoted to No. 2 last year by Katerína Stefanídi, who assumes that position this time around. European champ Stefanídi also won the DL Final, but had losing records against both Morris (4–5) and Anzhelika Sidorova (3–5) so couldn’t move up…

2-TIME NO. 1 SUHR had a 2–1 record over the Russian, but she ended her season early when groin/pelvis pain led to an MRI that showed swelling, a cyst and a mass in her pelvis. As a result, her DL credit line of 1-2-=5 couldn’t compare with Sidorova’s 1-2-3-3-6. So World Indoor silver medalist Sidorova gets 3, Suhr 4.

MORRIS & SUHR led the way as the U.S. racked up its highest point total ever in the event, 22, with Katie Nageotte checking in at No. 6. It’s also only the second time the U.S. has had 3 Rankers, the previous incidence coming in ’01 (Stacy Dragila, Kellie Suttle & Mary Vincent).
