Top 10 Ratings

Last updated: End of December 2019 (after Kona and all 2019 Ironman races, comparisons are to End of Year 2018)

I am working with the “Professional Triathletes Organisation” on their ranking (officially called the PTO World Rankings™️) that is going to be updated on a regular and that will be used to determine the Automatic Qualifiers for the Collins Cup. As those rankings are based on the same underlying analysis used on this site, I wanted to look at a few differences in protocol that will often create a different order of athletes:

  • The TriRating Top 10 are for Ironman-distance results only, while the PTO World Rankings look at all Pro races longer than Olympic Distance.
    (I have also added a separate section on the Top 10 athletes on the 70.3 distance.)
  • The PTO World Rankings have a focus on the last 12 months, while the TriRating Top 10 look at all results of an athlete over her/his career (of course with a bigger weight for more recent results). 
  • The TriRating data is also breaking down the rankings for each of the legs in a triathlon, and is also showing the best swimmers, bikers and runners over the Ironman distance.

After his big wins in Frankfurt and Kona, Jan Frodeno is the #1-ranked athlete by a good margin. Consistently good Sebastian Kienle is second, while Patrick Lange has fallen back into third after what can only be called a disappointing 2019 season. The US also has two athletes in the Top 10: Ben Hoffman in fourth, and Tim O’Donnell in eight.

TOP 10 Rated Female Athletes

Even with her 13th-place finish in Kona, Daniela Ryf continues to be at the top of the rankings, but with her amazing results in Copenhagen and Kona Anne Haug is just a few seconds back. Lucy Charles has fallen back into third place but is still improving her rating. Two Aussie women (Sarah Crowley in fourth and Carrie Lester in seventh) are placed in front of the two leading US women (Heather Jackson in eight and Sarah True in ninth).
