TRACK & FIELD NEWS 2018 MEN'S 400 WORLD RANKINGS

the400meters.comFred Kerley ends the season atop the T&F News 400 meter world rankings based on his 3 Diamond
League wins that included the Daimond League 400M final. He narrowly beat out Abdalelah Haroun as the two split their meetings with one win each.


What put Kerley over the top was his 3 Diamond League wins to Harouns one 400m DL win. Between the two they won 9 races  (Kerley 3, Haroun 6), but in his 3 wins Kerley beat  13 ranked 400 meter runners while Haroun only beat 9 in his 6 races. Kerley clearly was running in tougher races.



Missing from 2018's list were the last 7 No 1's. Kirani James (’11, ’12), LaShawn Merritt (’13, ’14), and Wayde van Niekerk (’15, ’16, ’17). James is recovering from Graves Disease, Merritt lost his season to plantar fasciitis and van Niekerk was rehabbing a rugby injury.
