    I have no idea what you're talking about but how on earth does Spencer have more points than Mclaughlin when Mclaughlin is more dominant in 2018 and 2019.

    I believe what the OP is talking about is that Muhammad got more points for a Bislett 2nd than she did for not only a WR but also beating a far superior field at USATF.

    WTF indeed

    It is not only who run against but how big the meets are.

    Go find Micheal Norman in the 400m..........

    Ah yes, the IAAF 'world rankings' - a work in progress (we hope).
    Talk about a glitch!

    also helps illustrate why the last consideration in T&FN Rankings has always been marks.

    I've been saying this for a long time: These rankings are utter crap. You get more points for a win at any DL meet than you do for a WR. The IAAF tried to hide this fact by not giving any points directly for a WR, but instead adding 20 points to each of the 5 scores, which still totals 100 points for a WR comparing to 200 for a DL win. The rankings are solely designed to increase the importance of IAAF meets, not to give an accurate or fair picture of rankings in any way.
    Besides, there are 1000s of results missing, which makes the IAAF rankings even worse.

    How many that would affect who gets ranked in the top 50. Past the top 50 in each event, who cares?

    If you are touting the accuracy or fairness of the rankings, THEY should care.
