2019 Women’s Steeplechase World Rankings

Beatrice Chepkoech became the first ever to score a 3-peat in the splash & dash. (ERROL ANDERSON/THE SPORTING IMAGE)

WR HOLDER BEATRICE CHEPKOECH was the only steepler to crack the 9:00 barrier in ’19 and she turned the trick twice. The second of those gave her WC gold and combining that with 4 DL wins (including the Final) made her a no-doubt choice for the top spot for the third year in a row… Chepkoech’s only loss was to Norah Tanui, who for unknown reasons didn’t run after the DL Final and ended up as No. 4…

EMMA COBURN DIDN’T WIN any international races, but a solid DL record and WC silver were enough to give her the runner-up position. This marked her ninth straight year as the U.S. No. 1…

THE EVENT’S ALL-TIME SCORING saw some major changes, with Hyvin Jepkemoi moving from No. 2 to =No. 1, Coburn from =6 to 2 and Chepkoech from 10 to =6.
