2022 Women’s Discus World Rankings

A win in the Diamond League final sewed up a repeat No. 1 for Valarie Allman. (GLADYS CHAI/ASVOM AGENCY)

LAST YEAR VALARIE ALLMAN became only the second American woman — following Stephanie Brown Trafton in ’08 — to earn a No. 1 here. Now she’s the first with a pair of leaderships…

BIN FENG WAS PERHAPS the most surprising WC winner, but with only one other lesser meet on her résumé couldn’t be any higher than No. 3…

THAT LEFT IT to Allman vs. Sandra Perković for the top spot. It was close, but the American won the DL title and was a 4–1 winner in the 5 DL meets in which they met…

THE 9 POINTS earned by the Croatian jumped her up all the way from 5th on the event’s all-time scoring list to 1st.
