2019 Women’s Heptathlon World Rankings

Katarina Johnson-Thompson finished the first day of the WC in the lead after beating Americans Erica Bougard & Kendell Williams in the 200. (KIRBY LEE/IMAGE OF SPORT)

THE NO. 1 RANKER BACK IN ’14, Katarina Johnson-Thompson made some history by being the first in the event ever to return to the top spot after 4 years out of the preeminent position. In the interim she had a no-appearance followed by places 6, 4 & 3. The last 3 of those years were ruled by Nafi Thiam…

KJT (6813 in Götzis) and Thiam (6819 a month later in Talence) put up big world-leading scores early this year, setting the stage for a super clash in Doha. It would be the ninth 7-event meeting of their careers, with Thiam holding a solid 6-2 edge, including the last 6 in a row. But this WC belonged to the Briton who scared the 7000-point barrier with a convincing 6981-6677 win…
