2019 Women’s High Jump World Rankings

Mariya Lasitskene lost only twice in a long 23-meet season. (GLADYS CHAI/ASVOM AGENCY)

PUT A HIGH JUMP PIT in front of (or is it behind?) Mariya Lasitskene and she’s ready to go. This year it was 21 wins in 23 meets; last year was 17 of 18 and ’17 was a perfect 24 for 24. So since being shut out of the ’16 Rankings because of the IAAF’s Russian sanctions she’s merely 62 for 65, a batting average of .954. Long a glutton for punishment she was also markedly consistent in her No. 1 years of ’14 (13 for 16) and ’15 (16 for 23)…

DESPITE MISSING OUT ON THE WC MEDALS, Yuliya Levchenko grabs the runner-up spot, having forged a solid 6-2 record against silver medalist Yaroslava Mahuchikh, the 18-year-old wunderkind who claimed the World Junior Record…

BRONZE MEDALIST CUNNINGHAM had a winning record against Levchenko and was equal with Mahuchikh, but with only a single DL appearance and no meets other than the WC outside the U.S. she couldn’t rate any higher than No. 4, up a spot from the last two years. Add to that a 7th in ’16 and she has become the first American ever to score 4 years in a row.
