2022 Men’s Hammer World Rankings

It was Wojciech Nowicki’s turn to be on top again as the Polish juggnernaut continued to roll. (JIRO MOCHIZUKI)

POLAND NOT ONLY provided the winner for the seventh time in a row but also went 1–2 for the fifth straight time thanks to Wojciech Nowicki (wins in ’18, ’21 & ’22) and Paweł Fajdek (wins in ’15, ’16, ’17 & ’19)…

THE POWERFUL PAIR met no fewer than 10 times, with Nowicki coming out ahead 6–4. He also won 5 meets at the DL/CT level to 2 for Fajdek, thus overcoming his loss at the WC…

LAST YEAR a pair of Americans were honored for the first time since ’69. With Rudy Winkler and Daniel Haugh scoring again this year it marked the first time since ’65 & ’66 that a pair of Americans scored in back-to-back years.
