2021 Women’s Discus World Rankings

Olympic champ Valarie Allman broke her own American Record in Berlin. (GLADYS CHAI/ASVOM AGENCY)

WITH WINS AT BOTH the Olympic Games and DL Final Valarie Allman was a clear No. 1, the first American to turn that trick since Stephanie Brown Trafton in ’08. She did lose a pair of meets, both times finishing behind Nos. 2 & 3, Yaimé Pérez and Sandra Perković. But overall she beat the Cuban 4-3 and the Croatian 4-2… P & P split their 8 meetings 4-4, but Pérez’s better Tokyo finish, 2nd to 4th, gave her the runner-up spot…

KRISTIN PUDENZ WAS A BIT of a surprise as Olympic silver medalist, but with a 2-11 overall record against the big 3 — 0-4 Allman, 1-4 Pérez, 1-3 Perković — couldn’t rate any higher than No. 4…

IN ALL-TIME SCORING, Perković’s 11th appearance garnered her enough to points to move from No. 8 to No. 5… Among U.S. scorers at the world level, Allman moved from No. 8 to No. 4.
