2019 Men’s 1500/Mile World Rankings

Repeat No. 1 Timothy Cheruiyot won the WC by more than 2 seconds. (VICTOR SAILER/PHOTO RUN)

THERE WAS NO QUESTION about No. 1 here, as Timothy Cheruiyot dominated the event, incurring only a single early-season loss. His closing sequence featured 5 DL wins, victory in the Kenyan Trials and a World Champs gold medal. He broke the 3:30 barrier three times; nobody else had even one…

COMING UP WITH A NO. 2 was fun, given the conflicting data. Despite his never winning a DL race and missing out on the WC podium, Jakob Ingebrigtsen got the nod, based on his consistently high DL showings… That slipped the young Norwegian in ahead of Uganda’s first-ever Ranker, Ronald Musagala, who claimed a pair of DL wins before not making the Doha final…

AFTER A 2-YEAR DROUGHT the U.S. had a Ranker in the form of rookie Craig Engels at No. 8… Kenya has had the No. 1 in this event every year starting with ’04, when Hicham El Guerrouj’s reign ended.
