2022 Women’s Javelin World Rankings

Kara Winger wrapped up her glorious javelin career by becoming the first American ever to finish No. 1. (KIRBY LEE/IMAGE OF SPORT)

TALK ABOUT GOING OUT in a blaze of glory! Kara Winger had decided that at age 36 this would be her final season. June brought her USATF title No. 9. With July came her first major international-championship medal, a silver. And in the span of a week in September she reclaimed her AR with a 223-5 (68.11) that was also the yearly world lead and finished off with the DL Final win…

BUT WHO WAS No. 1 overall, Winger or world champ Kelsey-Lee Barber? They split their 4 meetings down the middle but Winger had a pair of DL wins to one and had the better sequence of marks and narrowly gets the nod for the top spot.
