2021 Men’s High Jump World Rankings

Gianmarco Tamberi & Mutaz Barshim shared the Olympic gold, but the Italian earned sole possession of No. 1. (KIRBY LEE/IMAGE OF SPORT)

WITH A COMBINED 17-17-2 RECORD against the next six rankers, Gianmarco Tamberi was hardly dominant but a shared OG gold and DL Final win made him a clear choice for #1. He becomes Italy’s first No. 1 in the event…

4-TIME NO. 1 Mutaz Barshim had a skimpy 5-meet season, but his share of the gold was enough to give him his fourth No. 2. It’s his tenth straight appearance and at 86 points he now trails only Javier Sotomayor (117), Dwight Stones (90) & Stefan Holm (88) on the all-time list. At 30, he should still have several good years left…

TOP AMERICAN JUMPER JuVaughn Harrison ranks for the first time. Still a collegian, his only opportunity to jump outside the U.S. was his Olympic 7th, his only loss of the year.
