2022 Women’s Pole Vault World Rankings

After repeating as World Indoor gold medalist Sandi Morris won her third straight Outdoor silver. (JIRO MOCHIZUKI)

THERE WAS NO DIFFICULTY in separating rivals/training partners Sandi Morris and Katie Nageotte (now newly married as Moon). Nageotte won the WC title, but was destroyed 8–1 overall by World Indoor winner Morris, who added a runner-up finish at the DL Final as well as the WC…

THE DL FINAL went to Aussie Nina Kennedy, who ended up at No. 3 after going 2–3 against Morris and 1–2 against Nageotte… Arkansas alum Tina Šutej rated as No. 4 after an honors line that included a WC 4th plus bronzes at the WIC and DLF and a DL win.
