2019 Women’s Javelin World Rankings

For the second year in a row Huihui Lu speared her way to the top spot. (KIRBY LEE/IMAGE OF SPORT)

SHE LOST HER first and last meets of the year, but in between Huihui Lu ran off a streak of a dozen straight wins, include a trio of DL meets, including the Final in Zürich. With the year’s best sequence of marks, including the yearly leader, she repeated as No. 1, despite getting only the bronze at the WC…

WORLD CHAMP KELSEY BARBER backed up her Doha gold nicely with a trio of DL runner-up finishes. Only once all year did she not finish 1st or 2nd…

NO. 7-RATED KARA WINGER made the Top 10 for the third time, a feat previously achieved by only 3 other Americans: Ranae Bair, Barbara Friedrich & Kate Schmidt (with a record 8). Winger also claimed a record-tieing 8th U.S. leadership, matching Karin Smith’s total.
