2021 Men’s Triple Jump World Rankings

Twice a runner-up and thrice a No. 3, Pedro Pablo Pichardo finally earned a No. 1. (KIRBY LEE/IMAGE OF SPORT)

CONSPICUOUS BY HIS ABSENCE: Christian Taylor, after a ruptured Achilles. For the first time since ’10 his name doesn’t appear, stopping his bid to match Viktor Saneyev’s 9 No. 1s…

IN THE AMERICAN’S ABSENCE Pedro Pablo Pichardo became an obvious No. 1, capturing both the Olympic and Diamond League titles… Yaming Zhu won the Tokyo silver but had a short 5-meet season and never jumped on the European Circuit. He thus reverses places with bronze medalist Hugues Fabrice Zango, whose credits included a yearly list leader that was also a World Indoor Record…

WILL CLAYE SUCCESSFULLY bounced back (pun intended) from Achilles surgery of his own for a Tokyo 4th, but reverses places with Yasser Triki, who had a solid DL campaign.
