2019 Men’s Discus World Rankings

A rare No. 1 for Sweden: Daniel Ståhl is the first on top since Ricky Bruch in ’73. (KIRBY LEE/IMAGE OF SPORT)

BIG MARKS DON’T always translate to big Rankings, particularly in the discus, where finding the right wind can be so crucial. Daniel Ståhl topped the yearly lists in ’16, ’17 & ’18, but ended up in Rankings positions 6, 2 & 4. The 27-year-old Swede ended up atop the list again this year, but this time also made it to No. 1 for the first time…

THERE WAS NO DOUBT about Ståhl’s claim to the top spot, as he lost only 3 times in 16 meets and won the WC gold by almost a meter… Silver and bronze medalists Fedrick Dacres and Lukas Weißhaidinger claimed the 2-3 positions… In the No. 6 spot, Polish vet Piotr Małachowski picked up enough points to move to No. 10 on the all-time scoring list…

ON THE U.S. SIDE Mason Finley saw his streak of leaderships end at 3 as Sam Mattis moved up 2 spots from ’18 for his first No. 1.
