2022 Women’s High Jump World Rankings

The Pre Classic was just 1 of 5 DL wins racked up by young Yaroslava Mahuchikh. (KIRBY LEE/IMAGE OF SPORT)

IT WASN’T EASY to score a No. 1 without winning WC gold, but Yaroslava Mahuchikh managed it, even though she came out on the wrong side of a 2–3 seasonal record against Eugene champ Eleanor Patterson…

THE YOUNG UKRAINIAN won the World Indoor and DL Final and had an overwhelmingly superior overall DL record: 5 wins, a 2nd and a 5th compared to the less-exposed Aussie’s 1st and a 2nd…

THE RUSSIAN BAN helped put an end to Mariya Lasitskene’s streak of 4 straight No. 1s (and 6 years out of 7)… Vashti Cunningham topped the U.S. Ranks for the 5th year in a row.
