2019 Women’s Discus World Rankings

Yaimé Pérez was the better half of a formidable Cuban 1–2. (GLADYS CHAI/ASVOM AGENCY)

FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE ’88, when East Germany actually went 1-2-3-4, a nation went 1-2 in the Rankings as Cubans Yaimé Pérez and Denia Caballero each moved up a spot to claim the first two positions. It was rather straightforward, as the two met no fewer than 15 times, Pérez coming out ahead 10–5, including crucial wins in the DL Final and World Championships…

PERKOVIĆ’S LONG REIGN ON TOP finally ended at a record-tieing 7-straight No. 1s. For the first time since ’11, she also had no DL wins on her scorecard. The Croatian great was still among the elite’s elite, as she was still in a class well above the non-Cuban contenders…

VALARIE ALLMAN repeated as the top American and in the process earned her first World Ranking spot at No. 6.
