2022 Women’s 1500 World Rankings

Faith Kipyegon produced 3 of the 7 fastest times ever, the slowest of which was this 3:52.96 WC win. (GLADYS CHAI/ASVOM AGENCY)

FURTHER BURNISHING her claim as perhaps the event’s greatest ever, Faith Kipyegon moved into a tie for all-time points scored with Maryam Jamal. And only Jamal, with 5, has more No. 1s than the Kenyan’s 4…

SHE RAN IN ONLY 4 meets, but Kipyegon won them all, 3 of the biggest DLs plus the World Championships. She came within a hair of claiming the WR in her 3:50.37 Monaco win…

2 AMERICANS, Heather MacLean and Sinclaire Johnson, joined the Top 10, both for the first time… Ireland’s Ciara Mageean skipped the WC in favor of a Commonwealth/Euros double but had a very strong late season.
