2019 Men’s Triple Jump World Rankings

Christian Taylor’s latest No. 1 gives him 8 leaderships in the last 9 years. (VICTOR SAILER/PHOTO RUN)

BIG NAMES continue to fall by the wayside as Christian Taylor continues his climb up the TJ’s all-time scoring lists. This year’s win, his eighth, breaks a tie with WR holder Jonathan Edwards and now finds him trailing only Viktor Saneyev’s 9. The 10 points he picked up this year moved him from 7th to 5th on the all-time scoring list, passing a pair of WR setters from the ’50s, Adhemar da Silva and Leonid Shcherbakov. Speaking of all-time scoring, Will Claye climbed into the 9th position…

A FLORIDA TEAMMATE OF TAYLOR’S, Claye has been in the Rankings every year that Taylor has, but No. 1s have obviously been hard to come by. This year’s runner-up finish marks his fifth time in that position. Taylor had a convincing 4–1 edge in their head-to-head meetings this year. Note that we didn’t count USATF as a real competition for Taylor as he merely made a mandatory appearance to get on the team and didn’t register a mark.
