2021 Men’s 800 World Rankings

Emmanuel Korir returned to the No. 1 spot he had claimed back in ’18. (JIRO MOCHIZUKI/PHOTO RUN)

WITH EMMANUEL KORIR & Ferguson Rotich going 1-2 in both the Olympic and DL Final races (and with Korir scoring an overall 4-2 edge) filling out the top two slots was easy… UTEP alum Korir thus reclaimed the No. 1 status he had earned in ’18…

CANADA’S MARCO AROP didn’t advance to the Olympic final but came out even (5-5) in his head-to-heads against the Kenyan pair. He also did something neither of them did, winning a pair of DL meets The only other double winner was third Kenyan Wycliffe Kinyamal, who thus slotted in at No. 4…

TOP AMERICAN CLAYTON MURPHY was 3rd in the DL Final but other than that wasn’t a high finisher on the circuit so could claim only the No. 10 spot… Reigning world No. 1 Donavan Brazier came up with an injured foot at the Olympic Trials.
