2021 Men’s 10,000 World Rankings

SORTING THIS ONE OUT was largely a matter of figuring which nations’ Trials races fit where in the skeleton laid down by the all-important Olympic race… Selemon Barega scored big in races in both clashes, winning the toughest Trials race, Ethiopia’s, before taking Olympic gold…

THE ’18 & ’19 No. 1, Joshua Cheptegei ran only in Tokyo, where his silver earned him No. 2, ahead of fellow Ugandan Jacob Kiplimo, who claimed the year’s fastest time, a 26:33.93 that moved him to No. 7 on the all-time list…

GRANT FISHER’S Tokyo 5th earned him that spot in the Rankings too in his first-ever appearance… Kenya’s top scorer was Rodgers Chumo at No. 7, marking the first time the East African powerhouse hasn’t had somebody in the top half-dozen since ’04.
