2021 Women’s Marathon World Rankings

The Olympic Games was the first of two big wins for Peres Jepchirchir. (JIRO MOCHIZUI/PHOTO RUN)

SHE WAS ONLY No. 24 on the yearly world list, but there is no question that Peres Jepchirchir deserved the top spot in the Rankings, backing up her Olympic gold with a win in the year’s final WMM race, New York City. In her first Rankings appearance she became the fifth different Kenyan in a row to claim No. 1…

THE BATTLE FOR No. 2 was a close one. Angela Tanui won a trio of races, but none of them were top tier affairs, so she ended up behind Joyciline Jepkosgei, who won the deepest WMM race, London… Brigid Kosgei makes it a Kenyan 1-2-3-4, her Olympic silver keeping her ahead of the Ethiopian pair who beat her in London, Degitu Azimeraw & Ashete Bekele…

AMERICAN MOLLY SEIDEL is next, making her first-ever appearance after an Olympic bronze and 4th in New York City.
